Trinidad — 3 nights

Trinidad is a seaside city in Humboldt County, located on the Pacific Ocean 8mi north of the Arcata-Eureka Airport and 15mi north of the college town of Arcata. We've included these beaches for you: Enderts Beach and Big Lagoon County Park. Kids will enjoy Redwood National Park and Moonstone Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Trees of Mystery (in Klamath), Crescent City (Stout Grove, Jedediah Smith Redwoods State Park, &more) and California Coastal Trail (in Redwood National Park). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Trinidad State Beach, admire the majestic nature at Patrick's Point State Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at College Cove, and explore the striking landscape at Camel Rock.

California's cities offer diverse attractions, from amusement parks and upscale shops to award-winning restaurants and innovative art galleries. Outside the state's big urban centers, places to visit include some of the nation's most rugged national parks, ancient forests, towering mountain peaks, and ski resorts.
