Destination guide

Humboldt County is handsome country

Prepare to be wowed by the sheer audacity of the coastline that runs the length of Humboldt County. Carved by jutting stone cliffs and forever buffeted by the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, it nose-dives into the swells in a jumble of spear-like redwood forests and lonely beaches. Hulking giant sequoia spread over the inland, misty lagoons hide between the canyons, hearty Northwest smokehouses bustle, old pioneer forts beckon, and Humboldt County vacation rentals offer a base in the middle of it all. Up beyond the Lost Coast, this is family fun, romance and adventure rolled into one.

Things to do

Humboldt County fuses history and nature

From the panoramic lookouts of Patrick's Point to the rocky shores of Big Lagoon, the towering sequoia groves of the Redwood National and State Parks to the abandoned beaches of the wild Lost Coast, there's certainly no shortage of attractions courtesy of Mother Nature here. There's human heritage, too. Bag yourself Humboldt County vacation rentals in Eureka to encounter a bona fide Victorian historic district. Or, go inland to handsome Ferndale, where you can unravel the story of the dairy industry in the local museums.


Humboldt County is a real West Coast adventure

Visions of mighty redwoods and glimpses of empty bays splashed by the Pacific aren't the stuff of dreams in this cutout of North California – they're reality. You can spend whole vacations delving into groves of colossal sequoia trees, pitching tents in old-growth rainforests, and hiking the bracing clifftop trails. Of course, it's not all about the great outdoors. Humboldt County vacation rentals in historic Ferndale or pretty little Eureka mean history tours of old Victorian mansions, and foot-stomping live music joints where fiddles echo and guitars are strummed.

Natural features

Humboldt County is nature's playground

Where to begin? Perhaps in the north, where the Six Rivers National Forest tumbles down from the Trinity Alps with its turquoise-hued waterways and old-growth swathes. Or maybe along the North Coast, where the Redwood National and State Parks are home to temperate rainforests that soar higher than even the binoculars can see. They eventually collide with the Pacific, creating untamable seascapes where California sea lions and gray whales frolic. Further south, the King Range National Conservation Area takes over, offering long, arched sand beaches, and sunsets that are to die for.
