Arcata Travel Guide

Edit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see


  Arcata is an exciting progressive town with many things to see and do. Home to Humboldt State University, college students fill the town from August to May, giving the town a youthful spirit. Life centers on the historic Arcata Plaza, surrounded by delightful shops and restaurants. There is a fun music scene for lovers of anything from bluegrass, reggae, classic rock, and tons of local musicians. Enjoy the farmer's market every Saturday with live music, tons of fresh produce, and a wonderful community feeling.

 Nature lover's explore the Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary and the quiet serenity in the Arcata Community Forest lush with ferns and towering redwoods. There are miles of manicured trails for bikers, hikers, and equestrians. Enjoy a beautiful uncrowded beach all to yourself in a short drive.
