Spacious Crescent City Vacation Rental Home Near Ocean
This is a smoke-free, spacious home, sitting at the corner of Freeman and Pacific Avenue, one block from the ocean.
Walk out either Freeman or Pacific Avenue, and you come to a small picnic area that straddles some of the most spectacular scenery on the Pacific Coast. To the south runs a rugged, rocky ocean front with a picturesque view of the lighthouse.
To the north stretches a beautiful sandy beach, sheltered from the waves by sea stacks and a small rock island that harbors a large population of birds and a colony of sea lions.
To the north, and only minutes away by car, is Point Saint George, which is much more exposed and offers a spectacular place to hike during major storms. Crescent City Bay, at the southern edge of town, tends to be relatively protected because of its U-shaped coastline.
Just outside the southern city line is the border of Redwoods National Park. The coastal redwoods here are among the most grand and spectacular of their kind and form cathedral-like hiking areas.
On the west side of highway 101 the steep slopes descend all the way to rocky beaches and small coves at the Pacific Ocean. On the east side, moss-covered forests often provide beautiful views of rays of sunlight penetrating a hazy atmosphere.
Other activities include ocean kayaking, canoeing the Smith and Klamath rivers, or any of the other rivers in the area. You may also partake in bird watching, deep sea fishing, bicycling, etc.
This corner of California is an outdoors paradise, and yet is still relatively quiet and unspoiled.
