Places to Visit and Things to Do in Scotia


Humboldt County is home to some of the most interesting places on the West Coast. When you live in Scotia you’re surrounded by the most majestic, beautiful redwoods in the world along Highway 101!

Of course, if you don’t live here yet, come visit Scotia and tour our professionally decorated model home and discover how you can make this your permanent home. Then take a drive through Humboldt County’s vast Sea of “red gold.” The surrounding redwood trees are breathtaking and with over 50,000 acres there’s more than enough room to picnic, camp, hike, swim, fish, raft or bike.

Here are just a few things you don’t want to miss:

The Redwoods: The Avenue of the Giants is about 10 miles south of Scotia. It’s down the old Highway 101, surrounded on both sides with huge Redwoods. The Avenue includes a stop for tourist information and many trails. If you’re hungry this place also has two local, organic roadside farm stands with fresh produce!

Drive Thru Tree: The Original Drive-Thru Tree in Myers Flat has been family-owned since 1958. Known worldwide as the Shrine of the Redwoods, the natural opening in the tree was created by fire centuries ago. It is large enough for full sized autos and pickups to drive through. Enjoy a great photo opportunity with the family!

The One Log House: The One Log House was carved out in 1946 and has been in its current resting stop on the Humboldt / Mendocino County line since 1999. The admission is only a dollar, and if you’re on Highway 101 already, you have to stop! Plus, their espressos are delicious.
