This town has the word 'granola' written all over it. Call it NorCal hippy, crazy college students or whatever, it has a certain feeling that you won't get in just any small coastal town. Hemp clothing, bead shops & more tie dye than you've seen in years.

    The whole city is anti-corporate by design. A coastal college town near bay side NorCal mecca of Eureka. Hippy kids around every corner, a very eclectic mix of people. Coffee shops, hemp clothes, very laid back Northern California. Humboldt State University, need we say more?
