Trinidad, known as "the Crown Jewel of the North Coast" is a historic, seaside village that sits above it's own natural harbor.  The harbor and pier are home to world class  fishing and crabbing, both sport and commercial.  Only a twenty minute drive North to Redwood National Park,  it is the most picturesque and convenient  town to stay in while  visiting the Redwoods.  The majestic offshore rocks are now part of California's Coastal National Monument.  The spectacular coastline offers ten incredible public beaches and most are pet friendly.  Surfing, stand-up paddling and kayaking adventures are a great way to enjoy Trinidad's beautiful coast and wildlife.  Visitors will love looking for whales and hunting for agates!  Trinidad is rich with Native American history and was once a whaling town.  The fascinating history of one of California's smallest incorporated cities  can be explored at the Trinidad Museum.  Wander through the unique shops, art galleries, wine tasting room and enjoy some delicious local seafood.  Take a short drive North to Patrick's Point State Park to explore where parts of Jurassic Park were filmed and hike incredible coastal trails.  Continue North a few more miles and explore  Humboldt Lagoons State Park for a picnic lunch and an afternoon of kayaking. No visit to Trinidad is complete without a day getting pampered at  Trinidad's Massage and Day Spa followed by a romantic fine dining experience at Moonstone Grill or Larrupin Cafe.
