Luis and Lacey showed us around town and were awesome hosts. We had passed through Arcata the first week of our trip and really liked it. This is another one of those towns I could imagine staying for a while. Really comfortable and mellow. And, there’s a Westy on every block – I promise. If you come here and you don’t see 20 Westys, I’ll give you a dollar.
The Saturday market seems to bring out everyone in town – some with their lizards, some with their birds, juggling pins, hula hoops, banjos, etc. You get the idea.
I’m thinking the town square also has one of the most-climbed trees in the county as well. I had to go up too. You just can’t not climb this thing.
