Humboldt County is home to the eclectic, the creative, the bold and the daring. Within its borders thrive peace-seekers, adventurers, makers and innovators whose endeavors are inspired by the natural landscape and fostered by the community. The region boasts more artists per-capita than any other county in California and promotes the arts through festivals, on-going art walks and street fairs. Following the lead of the Back-to-the-Landers who sought refuge in Humboldt in the 1960s, the area is also a haven for sustainable business and for the environmentally conscious. Its no surprise that the county's pristine beauty attracts visitors but the colorful local culture has become a destination, in and of itself.
