Located on Humboldt Bay, Eureka is considered the capital of the Redwood Empire region of California. While the population is under 50,000 it is the largest coastal city between San Francisco and Portland. A major commercial fishing port, Eureka was once
the center of a booming timber industry. The historic downtown area includes spectacular Victorian mansions as well as a newly developed waterfront, marina and performing arts center.
Visitors to Eureka can enjoy a wide range of outdoor activities on Humboldt Bay including kayak tours, fishing charters or a harbor cruise on the Madaket.
Historic downtown offers many shops and restaurants as well as a Ghost Tour of historic buildings, horse drawn carriage rides, The Carson Mansion, and much more. For an authentic historical experience The Blue Ox Millworks offers demonstrations and education
on the way of life and historic arts of Victorian era.
For foodies and seafood lovers the Humboldt Bay Tourism Center is a good place to start with an oyster bar on the waterfront as well as a tasting room offering local wines, beers, cheeses and much more.
Eureka has many of the cultural offerings of a big city. You can enjoy several outstanding art exhibits offered by the Morris Graves Museum or an evening of entertainment at the Arkley Center for the Performing Arts which hosts the Eureka Symphony and a series
of local and touring artists throughout the year. Various world-renowned festival and events take place here year-round as well such as the Redwood Coast Jazz Festival and The Kinetic Sculpture Race. The city is even home to its very own Sequoia Park Zoo,
an excellent place to enjoy a perfect family day.
With all this to offer, Eureka maintains the small town feel and natural beauty that brings many visitors to the Redwood Coast. Many options for lodging include long term furnished rentals, vacation homes, and more.
