As you come into town from the South, you drive by the beautiful, surfable southbeach. One of the most accessable beaches in Northern California.
Across from the Crescent City, City Limit sign is the Harbor. Crescent City harbor is a working harbor with fishing boats and the like, The England Marina store has the best rain gear, fishing tackle and stuff to fix your boat or surfboard. And that is where you get your fishing license!! At the harbor there is also a blacksmith, dry dock, RV park, the Grotto Restaurant and gift shop, the Chart Room Restaurant and the South Beach Outfitters surf shop, a deli and The Beacon Burger as well as an eclectic group of people.
If you've come from HWY 101 or 199 you've been through the redwoods, we never get tired of them but there is more here to see. Like, the ocean, forests, rivers, creeks, sand dunes, lakes, birds, flora, fauna, more redwoods and the lists go on. Much of what Del Norte County has to offer is free or inexpensive. Give yourself enough time and relax, you don't have to spend a lot of time in traffic here or long lines. Welcome!
