Crescent City

Crescent City is the gateway to the Smith River National Recreation Area. The visitor center at the Redwood National and State Parks headquarters is worth a stop before exploring the redwoods. The nearby Smith River Scenic Byway provides a glimpse into one of the largest Wild and Scenic River Systems in the United States, and the 27-mile section along the river is worth driving.

St. George’s Reef Lighthouse lies six miles off Point St. George at the northeast corner of the Crescent City. A scenic drive extends along the oceanfront all the way into the center of the city. It passes Pebble Beach and the municipal airport, and the Castle Rock National Wildlife Refuge offshore. Closer to downtown, Battery Point Lighthouse is on an island so close that it is accessible by foot at low tide. Crescent City’s harbor supports both commercial and sport fishing vessels. The city’s namesake Crescent Beach extends in a broad crescent to the south.

A tsunami struck Crescent City after the great Alaska earthquake of 1964 and destroyed the business district. Evidence of it can still be seen and its memory is preserved in the many local names incorporating the word "Tsunami."

Elk Valley Casino, nestled in the redwoods on the edge of Crescent City, offers a festive gaming experience. Nearby is the public 18-hole Del Norte Golf Course, Tsunami Lanes state-of-the-art bowling alley, and the Tsunami Sports Bar and Grill for viewing premier sporting events.

While in town, visit the Historical Society Museum with its Tolowa and Yurok Indian artifacts and original lens from the St. George Reef Lighthouse, and also visit the Marine Mammal Center, one of three rescue and rehabilitation centers in California. Del Norte County–Crescent City visitor center is adjacent to the park headquarters on Front Street and has information about all of these attractions.
