CITY OF EUREKA

Rural Sophistication in the Victorian Seaport

With its central location and proximity to numerous attractions, Eureka is the ideal hub from which to branch out on your Redwood Coast adventures. 

The town was born and raised in the timber industry of the mid-1800s, along with fishing and a well-earned reputation for being a bit wild. Eureka’s waterfront could give the Barbary Coast a run for its money, so much so that writer Jack London came here in search of authentic tough guys on which to base his characters. Today things are quieter, but Eureka retains many reminders of its brawling, lusty past.

The wonderfully preserved and restored building stock makes Eureka a veritable open-air museum of Victorian architecture. A truly breathtaking artistic scene--evidenced by murals, sculpture, galleries, museums and performances--has earned Eureka the title of "America's Best Small Arts Town."

There's an inspired culinary movement going on, where the bountiful products of California's Redwood Coast are presented with passion. And lodging choices are plentiful, ranging from simple motels to luxurious inns boasting award-winning wine lists.

There's a lot going on in Eureka--explore the links below to discover your next adventure.
