Trinidad Reviews

2 reviews
Trinidad is a coastal town in California which is on Yurok-Tsurai ancestral lands. The current demographic of this town are retired caucasians while Native Americans live on the rancheria. Most of the area is considered rural and lacks public transportation. The driving force of the local economy relies on fishing, and is currently threatened by climate change as seas continue to warm and rise. This part of the coast is along a subduction zone and is prone to earthquakes and tsunamis. Trinidad must plan for the future by using best management practices towards rising sea levels if they want to continue to thrive, or else risk relocation.

Trinidad is a very beautiful place to be. It is small town, you can walk around the whole town and stop by the shops and coffee shops, restaurants and go to the beach all in one day. The people there are easy going.
