Plan Your Visit to Crescent City & Del Norte County, California
Discover the Fringe of Old California Where Nature Outnumbers People
Explore Crescent City, California and Our Surrounding Communities within Del Norte County: Klamath, Smith River, Gasquet, Hiouchi and Fort Dick
There’s a feeling in our salt air. It’s a feeling hard to describe. But when you arrive, you’ll feel it. And you might hear it. It’s calm. It’s quiet. And it’s as if someone or something is whispering “stay”.
CRESCENT CITY — AND ALL OF DEL NORTE COUNTY — is a place for spirited independence where we encourage entertaining yourself and getting lost in wonder as part of the journey. Awe-inspiring rewards are for those who make the time to go out of the way. Who walk the trail alone. Who choose to leave a legacy of memories spent with their children, family and friends. Who choose to count the moments by smiles and not “shoulds”.
A raw, unsung California spirit ripples throughout Del Norte County and our communities: Crescent City, Klamath, Smith River, Gasquet, Hiouchi and Fort Dick.
This is the last stop. The last coast. The fringe of Old California where nature outnumbers people.
