- stand up paddle the rivers, lakes, lagoons and bay
- world-class fishing in both fresh and ocean waters
- fabulous ocean point breaks for surfing; as well as sailing, kayaking, hunting
- and so many other activities

Backpacker magazine names the region as one of “The Best Cities to Raise an Outdoor Kid.”
And the World Wildlife Fund has named Humboldt County as part of one of the most diverse eco-regions left on the planet.
Nearby towns of Fortuna, Ferndale, Arcata, McKinleyville, and Trinidad each offer their own unique take on life in Humboldt.

- And more!
Some events span across multiple towns and multiple days like the Annual Kinetic Sculpture Races and the cycling event The Tour of the Unknown Coast.
The Arcata Farmers’ Market in the square is a county wide attraction bringing residents and visitors to the cultural center of Humboldt to purchase amazing organic and local greens, meats, flowers, trees, plants and cooked foods—nearly always with live music and arts as well.

Lonely Planet, the largest travel guide book publisher in the world, named our coastal redwood forests as the #1 destination in the US for 2018.

Humboldt has previously been recognized by Outdoor Magazine, National Geographic, Backpacker Magazine, USDA Most Scenic Rural County, and by Men’s Journal (as one of the top seven places to “buy land in paradise”).
Numerous area schools have received state and federal awards, and Humboldt State University—on 144 acres tucked into an old growth redwood grove with views of Humboldt Bay—has nearly 50 undergrad degrees, about a dozen graduate degrees, and one of the most impressive undergrad marine research departments in the country.
We are rural—about five hours drive north of San Francisco—but we have sophisticated cultural and social amenities, a thriving locavore tradition, and our local regional airport has daily direct flights to and from San Francisco and Los Angeles.
