​10 Ways to Brighten a Rainy Day

1. Go on a mini wine tour by visiting the tasting room at Moonstone Crossing (529 Trinity St.).  All the wines are made locally and the sommeliers can suggest pairings.
2. Bundle up and park by the Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse to watch the storm roll in over the ocean.
3. Learn more about this historic seaside town at the Trinidad Museum (400 Janis Court).
4. While away an afternoon at theTrinidad Art Gallery
(490 Trinity St.)
5. Visit the Humboldt State University Marine Laboratory (570 Ewing St.) to learn more about our ocean, ecosystem and the animals in it!
6. Try your luck at Cher-ae Heights Casino
(27 Scenic Drive) — great tables and a jaw-dropping view from the restaurant.
7. Browse for gifts and souvenirs at Trinidad Trading Company (460 Main St), the Eatery gallery,
(607 Parker Street) and WindanSea (410 Main St).
8. Drive to the Clam Beach scenic overlook (Hwy 101 south), then turn around at the Airport Road exit and head north to Patrick’s Point State Park for dramatic storm and ocean views.
9. Follow the locals to classes, dances and events by checking out notices in the windows at Trinidad Town Hall (409 Trinity St.) and outside the Westhaven Center for the Arts (501 Westhaven Drive S).
10. Get outside anyway! A little drizzle doesn’t stop most Trinidadians from enjoying their day. Put on a rain coat and savor the bracing ocean air.
