Crescent City, California, USA, is surrounded by quaint motels and campgrounds, but it's an especially exciting destination because it is home to a Crescent City, California, USA hostel.

Despite its name, Crescent City isn't much of a city; there are only a few thousand residents. That doesn't mean there's nothing to do -- it's quite the contrary. However, unless you're an avid cyclist with a goal to bike the Pacific Coastline, a car will be necessary. Your hostel inn Crescent City, California, USA, likely won't be located downtown, and some of the best attractions lie outside city borders anyway.

Crescent City is located right on the Pacific Ocean, and offers some beautiful beaches. Wetsuits are encouraged if you want to get in the water as it can be chilly year-round. For a water-free alternative, walk along the sand and enjoy the views. On the coast, you can visit the historic Battery Point Lighthouse that currently houses a museum, but is only accessible at low tide! The Crescent City Harbor and other historic points are also popular among visitors. While exploring the beach, you may have encounters with sea life. If you really want to get up close and personal with these creatures, be sure to visit Ocean World, an aquarium near the harbor.

Crescent City houses the headquarters for Redwoods National Park, and with just a short drive, you can be exploring these giant trees! The national park, along with Jedidiah Smith Redwoods State Park, is the best place to go to enjoy the natural state of these rare tall trees. If you want something more touristy, drive South on Highway 101 where you can tour the famous Trees of Mystery, or drive your car through the Tour-Thru Tree, both located in Klamath, California. If your road trip leads you further south, make sure to take a detour through the Avenue of the Giants.

Headed North? From Crescent City, you're just a short drive away from the Oregon border. Continue up the highway for incredible coastal views with fun towns interspersed between them. Most of these Oregon coastal towns are too small to support a hostel, so make sure to plan your trip so that you can spend a night in a Crescent City, California, USA hostel. It's the best place to spend your time in Del Norte County and beyond!
