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.

— When I plan a trip, I no longer waste time visiting multiple websites in search of the best accommodations. Now, I just go to AllTheRooms and immediately find everything from luxury villas to pet-friendly rentals! All in one place
— Like the buttons on the calendar which say today, tomorrow - that will make it easy for booking on the road. Website looks great - clean and easy to understand.
— I love AllTheRooms because it is not only local homes for renting, and not only hotels, but everything combined. When I am about to book a place to stay, I usually spend a couple of hours looking through both hotel sites and local home sites, comparing the prices and places.
