Rain or Shine

A little rain isn’t going to stop our fun, not in Humboldt. In fact, folks here tend to not even bother with umbrellas, preferring to brave the weather with a hoodie and/or a hat.

And our county has plenty to entertain both when the fall sun shines or the winter clouds gather. Enjoy long walks on the beach? Our coasts are gorgeous all year and we’ve got a roundup of favorites for strolling — or rolling, if you’re using one of the sand-friendly wheelchairs available for use. And in Perfect Trips, you’ll find dozens of ways to enjoy the indoors and outdoors, from rock climbing to perusing art, sampling a farmstand’s wares to hitting the trails.

Avid readers and curious travelers will want to dig into some Humboldt literature. We’ve got a solid set of recommendations for fiction, memoirs, nonfiction and history by Humboldt authors from the owner of the storied Booklegger shop in Old Town Eureka. Just across the street at the Wine Cellar, we’ll take you for a tasting of offerings from around the globe and around the county, and maybe a few oysters, too.

When you’re ready to warm up, we’ll take you to the colorful Jerk Kitchen, where Jamaican cooking and vibrations will transport you to the Caribbean. (Hey, they get a lot of rain there, too.) We’ve also got some suggestions for classic sushi and ramen in Arcata at Nori, where you can settle in for sake and the chef’s omakase selection of the day.

Finally, we’ll share some of our favorite local cannabis products to unwind with. And as always, you’ll find the seasonal calendar of events in the back of the issue, with updated information at humboldtinsider.com.

Bring your umbrella. Or don’t — a little rain won’t hurt.
