est dispensary in Humboldt – small, but resembling service-oriented dispensaries of the Bay Area and Sacramento. All medicine is Clean Green certified organ- ic, evenly stocked with indicas, sativas and hybrids – including outdoor, greenhouse and indoor offerings. “B-grade” buds start at $10 a gram and some are discounted to $7. Top-shelf buds top out at $15 a gram. Shake joints are $2.50 and full-bud joints are $6. Budtenders use chopsticks to han- dle product, packaged in – of all things – classic Chinese food take-out containers..

There’s an Open beach, rock climbing, and kayaking. On the bluffs above, there’s Moonstone Grill for throat-clearing drinks on the deck.


Redwood Park is a five-minute walk away from Arcata Plaza, but grab a designated driver and explore the redwoods in Pat- rick’s Point State Park, about 20 miles north of Arcata, or do it up right and day- trip through SoHum’s other famous tall trees, the redwoods among the Avenue of the Giants.


Rent a bike at Life Cycle Bike Shop (1593 G St., Arcata) and explore the Ar- cata Marsh or the 5-mile-long Hammond Coastal Trail, with stunning vistas along the Pacific and easy access to estuaries.


The state Salmon Hatchery near Blue Lake, about 10 miles east of Arcata off Highway 299, offers easy access to the Mad River, where short hikes lead to swimmin’ holes in the summer and fall.
