So much to do. So little time.
Thank you, Lonely Planet for naming the Redwood Coast the number 1 travel destination.
The Lonely Planet travel team has picked California’s towering Redwood Coast as its number one for 2018. They cite its ability to steal your time (and cell signal) as intoxicating, its real life wonders – the last 100ft of redwood growth marks the 50 years since Redwood National Park was established – that can never be reproduced on screen, even in blockbusters like Jurassic Park, E.T. and Star Wars. This year, to mark their 100th anniversary, Save The Redwoods League are offering free entry to more than 40 state parks every second Saturday of the month.
"Surrounded by the redwood curtain, the Eureka Cultural Arts District features a wide variety of expressions – everyone can find something to love (and can say “Eureka!” when they find it), from murals to movies, theater to traditional crafts, galleries to historical museums, fine dining to great bagels. Skirting Humboldt Bay, the mild climate encourages walking and biking tours of public art, fine chocolate makers, local breweries, galleries, museums, artist studios, cafés, and organic ice cream.
Every month, hundreds converge on Old Town and Downtown for Eureka’s art walk, First Saturday Night Arts Alive! Visitors can patronize more than 75 open cultural sites and businesses displaying artworks or hosting performances. Musicians, jugglers, clowns, crafts vendors, politicians, and community activists line the streets to reach out to passersby. At certain times of the year, crowds of people gather to celebrate the Redwood Coast Music Festival, Taste of Main Street, Summer Concerts, Tuba Christmas, Woofstock, the Perilous Plunge, and more." - Visit California
