The Arcata Plaza

  • Address: Arcata Plaza, Between 8th & 9th and G & H Sts
  • Arcata, CA 95521
The Plaza, with its lawns, flowerbeds and statue of President McKinley, is the social and commercial center of Arcata. 

Delightful shops offering locally handcrafted merchandise, sports equipment, (kayaks, bikes, etc.) boutiques and restaurants line the Plaza and streets beyond it.

Arcata being a college town, the local bookstores and coffee houses are especially interesting. 

Stop in Arcata Artisans at the Plaza.

Do not miss Jacoby's Storehouse. This restored historical building has shops and a delightful central area where you can sit down, have an ice cream or snack and relax. Jaocby's is also home to two fine restaurants, Abruzzi and The Plaza Grill.
