The City of Eureka Has Numerous Attractions.

Eureka is the largest California city north of San Francisco, the principal city and county seat of Humboldt County, and adjacent to Humboldt Bay 100 miles south of the Oregon border on U.S. Route 101. As a port city, its facilities include marinas and industrial docking facilities, making it the largest deep water port between San Francisco and Coos Bay. Photo opportunities for shooting either marine/industrial subjects, or a host of waterfowl elsewhere on the bay are abundant, as well many picturesque shoreline features. Eureka once played a major role in the historic west coast lumber trade, and is the site of hundreds of significant Victorian era homes, including the nationally recognized Carson Mansion, situated at the head of its Old Town Historic District. Eureka is also home to California's oldest zoo, the Sequoia Park Zoo. As a city. is has a lovely blend of historical ambiance and forward-thinking, fun loving local culture.

The Redwood Empire and Coast which includes our Fun Beach Fun cities of Crescent City, Requa, Klamath, Orick, Trinidad, McKinleyville, Arcata, Eureka and Loleta, are spectacular cities all unique in their own way. The grandeur of the redwoods can be experienced from north to south. Climates can range from coast side lands drenched with fog in mild winters and summers to inland reaches backed by hot sunshine.

The region has earned distinction for its emerging cultural scene.

Eureka consistently ranks among the top ten small arts communities (The 100 Best Arts Towns in America). And Humboldt County has more artists per capita than any other county in California.

With a Victorian Character it is a delightful place to visit.

The Old Town and Downtown district has blocks of vintage commercial buildings, bookstores, restaurants, coffee houses, galleries and a variety of boutiquess. The Waterfront is a wonderful place to walk and view the bay. Take the Samoa Bridge to Woodley Island to see the Lighthouse and "The Fisherman," a striking memorial statue.
