History Museum
“This museum was locally founded in 1960 and exemplifies some of the rich local Native American cultures. They also display the history of gold rush settlements and timber industry. It's really a magnificent place to lose yourself for a while.”

Brewery
$$
“This is a local gem, and not only because the local micro brews are unforgettably delicious but because the food and atmosphere are great. This place is great for families but may require a reservation for large groups. They have famous hot wings, loaded nachos, daily soups, burgers made with local grass-fed beef, and lots of vegetarian/vegan options”

Grocery Store
“For just a few minutes drive, you can have a variety of fresh deli meals and sushi. This Co-Op is full of locally made award winning foods like Cypress Grove Chèvre, Humboldt Hot Sauce, and Beck's Bakery artisan breads. The deli provides items such as sandwiches, greek dolmas, potato salads, and lasagnas. The bakery includes some wonderful coffee and I personally recommend trying the Chocolate Chip & Sea Salt cookie. They also have a wide variety of gluten-free, vegan, vegetarian, soy-free, or dairy-free options. The wine selection is also one of the best in town.”
