Welcome to Heavenly Humboldt.

With over 110 miles of pristine beaches, endless trails through ancient redwood forests, lagoons and rivers perfect for kayaking, swimming, and fishing, and no crowds, Humboldt County is the perfect destination. We are open to visitors in accordance with the CDC, State and County Guidelines.

Remember that during this transition period many businesses – accommodations, restaurants, retailers, may choose to continue health and safety requirements to protect the health and wellbeing of employees, visitors, and residents. Fully vaccinated individuals no longer need to maintain physical distance or wear masks in most settings. Unvaccinated individuals must continue to wear masks in indoor public settings.

Please …

  • Be respectful of individual business safety policies for masking and social distancing;
  • Be patient as businesses transition to indoor service as many may not be fully staffed;

Remember to …

  • Wear a mask in public and indoors is still required for unvaccinated travelers
  • Wear a mask outdoors if unable to maintain a six foot distance from others. 
  • We look to you and trust that visitors without a mask are fully vaccinated.

Please recreate responsibly, respectfully and be considerate as we navigate this transition.

When making plans, please contact chosen destinations and event venues to confirm hours of operation as situations are fluid and changing.
