As the county seat of the world-famous Humboldt County, California, the City of Eureka is the heart of the U.S. redwood coast. Eureka is the market and cultural center of a beautiful region filled with iconic redwoods -— the world’s tallest trees — and stunningly beautiful rugged remote ocean landscapes.
Eureka is the largest coastal city between San Francisco and Portland and a frequent stopover point for road trippers exploring the Pacific Northwest. Culturally protected by the “redwood curtain,” the city is most famous for its unique Victorian architecture, creative culture, one-of-a-kind shops, restaurants, and artisanal businesses.
This is a relaxed, coastal community, but it is also the gathering place for an iconic region visited by travelers from all over the world. The eclectic scene is refreshingly distinct from its rural surroundings and provides the majority of the region’s festivals, performances, art galleries, entertainment, lodging, and dining options.
