Planning to share room and board with a furry four-footed roommate? Pet policies differ from property to property in Arcata, so be sure to contact a property in advance to see whether or not it’s pet-friendly.

For such a small city (11 square miles), Arcata is home to a surprising number of distinct neighborhoods (Arcata Bottoms, the Plaza Area, Alliance, and South G Street, to name just a few). Fortunately, there’s no such thing as an off-limits danger zone in Arcata, although, like any modern city, it does see its fair share of property/petty crimes. Obviously, use common sense and visit Arcata in advance to see whether or not you’re comfy with its ultra-liberal, loosey-goosey (it’s a technical term) vibes before signing a lease.
