Not gone. Take Anchor way PAST 170... Past the RV park. Look to the right past the little restaurant! Still there!

Before my trip to Crescent City, I went to one of my favorite web sites before a road trip: RoadsideAmerica. A friend of mine who visits Crescent City on business had never seen the scissors, which made me even more curious, so I really wanted to see them. I found Kim's Hair Studio quite by accident, and it seemed to be thriving! The scissors are not mechanized, but it is still in business and is a delightful little place, as is Crescent City!

Giant Scissors

Giant Scissors on top of Kim's hair salon -- still there. The scissors building sits behind the Bistro Gardens restaurant next to the Beacon Burger. You can walk along the harbor and see seals and a large sea lion population.

Big Motorized Scissors

I was here in August of 2008 and the scissors were still here, but never working. We went by 3 times during daytime hours. Now it all makes sense -- the place was still there but in the process of closing. What a shame, I wonder what they did with them? The Trees of Mystery and the Crescent City Aquarium were still worth it though.

These scissors are no longer there, instead it is a small restaurant now. :-(
