Azalea State Natural Reserve
As bad a reputation as college towns get for being boring during the summer months, there are some things to do in and around Arcata—including visiting this gorgeous nature reserve. It exists to protect the Western Azaela, which is most beautiful during the late spring and early summer months. If you plan on going on an outdoor adventure in April or May, Azalea State Natural Reserve is a great place to go, especially for some choice scenery with your paramour. You can picnic there and take a tour, too. Ever been to the natural reserve? Tell us about it.
