Old town is great I never tire of it and I’m a local. Every first Saturday of the month is arts alive a must see. Great shops and always changing. Great bay view with good eats.

Nice little town. Lots of Victorian style homes, worth the stop along the way to visit. Beautiful land and area.

They have a nice used bookstore, some funky shops, and lots of bars. The area is a little seedier than the small town shopping areas nearby. It is worth a stroll if you want to shop or window shop. There are some nice views of...More

As Todd C. said, the Bubbles store in Old Town closed - but the one in Arcata is well worth the trip, if you have the time. When I lived in Arcata, I shopped there frequently and love their products. We were back in town a... More
