McKinleyville is a scenic, bluff-located California community, overlooking the Pacific Ocean with a beautiful green backdrop of mountains. The town has a slow-paced, chilled atmosphere and a modern, vibrant community. Surrounded by natural beauty, it's a wonderful place to take a break in Northern California.
Explore the scenic Hammond Trail by foot or bike, the trail runs alongside the coast from one end of the town to the other. Head to the beach for a fun day surfing, kayaking, fishing, swimming or wandering the sand and relaxing by the shore.
Little River State Beach is perfect for families, and bordered by Clam Beach County Park, with a long sandy stretch of beach that goes on for miles and offers sweeping views.
The town's proximity to State Parks and forests is good news for outdoor types, with camping, hiking and excellent river fishing, plus horse trails and white water rafting. Bird watchers can look for rare species, and animal lovers might spot Roosevelt Elk wandering the forests.
It's best to visit in June so that you can enjoy the four-day fun that is Pony Express Days Festival, with a barn dance, gymkhana, parade and chili-cook off.

— I love All the Rooms because instead of having to check one place for home rentals, another for hotel, another for bed and breakfasts, and yet another for a room rental in a private residence, I can finally see EVERYTHING at one site; saving me considerable time
— When I first opened up the AllTheRooms.com site, I was impressed right away... When I’m traveling, I don’t like to waste time searching multiple engines for accommodations, it gets overwhelming and frustrating fast. I want a unique, comfortable stay for the best deal
— I love AllTheRooms because it enables me to compare a range of providers in just one search. I'd normally spend time checking prices across a range of platforms by visiting different websites one-by-one, so this helps me to save time on my accommodation searches while planning my upcoming trips
