Arcata, originally Union Town or Union, is a city adjacent to the Arcata Bay portion of Humboldt Bay in Humboldt County, California, United States. Popular historic sites such as Ferndale Historic Cemetery and Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse are in your itinerary. You'll get in some beach time at Moonstone Beach and Big Lagoon County Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Arcata: The Victorian Village of Ferndale (in Ferndale), Clendenen's Cider Works (in Fortuna) and Humboldt Lagoons State Park (in Trinidad). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Arcata Marsh and Wildlife Sanctuary, look for gifts at Holly Yashi Store and Design Studio, stroll through Hammond Trail, and take a leisurely stroll along Trinidad Harbor.
