We plan on traveling north from Humboldt County (CA) the last 2 weeks in December. We're hoping that rather than being stuck with trendy/famous/expensive places in the bigger towns, we could get ideas from fellow hounds. We're generally looking for interesting places 50 miles or less from I-5 or Highway 1(and not farther than British Columbia), but we could make exceptions for something really special. All cuisines, and decor is not that important. Offbeat is fine.
