Sequoia Park Zoo: the Pride of Humboldt County

You're visiting Redwood Country with your family. Beaches, forests, lakes, lagoons and sunsets, but what's something the kids will really love? Here's one thing: The Sequoia Park Zoo in Eureka, just a short drive from the BEST WESTERN Arcata Inn. This is the only California facility north of San Francisco accredited by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association. In fact it's the only zoo in a range of more than 350 miles from Southern Oregon to the S.F. Bay Area.

The Sequoia Park Zoo is located among groves of ancient redwoods and next to an award winning flower garden. It features a walk-through aviary and a barnyard, both big favorites with the kids. Within the zoo's modern pavilion you'll find a gift shop and cafe along with the zoo's striking indoor exhibits. It's a great place to see keepers prepare meals for the zoo animals. It's not to be missed, a great Northern California Zoo, in Eureka's Sequoia Park. Get more information online at www.sequoiaparkzoo.net or www.ci.eureka.ca.gov/depts/zoo.
