Eureka, California

As the cultural center of California’s North Coast, the city of Eureka welcomes visitors with a truly unique experience. The world-famous redwood trees draw visitors from across the globe, and artisan flair infuses the community’s farm to table foods, historical hotels and museums, eclectic theaters and venues, and distinctive artistic and cultural treasures. State recognized for its widely celebrated cultural arts district, the community’s passionate commitment to creativity is on display through 100+ public art displays, local shops and galleries, weekly Friday Night Markets, monthly Arts Alive events, and renowned annual festivals including the Kinetic Sculpture Race, the Eureka Street Art Festival, and many more. The entirety of the historic Old Town is on the National Register of Historic Places and features more than 150 notable buildings. Steps away from these Victorian architectural wonders, magical redwood groves are filled with the world’s tallest trees. Visitors experience the mighty redwoods from the fern filled forest floor and from 100 ft. above on the world-renowned Redwood Sky Walk at Sequoia Park Zoo. Outdoor enthusiasts kayak in Humboldt Bay, harvest their own oysters, take in the sights on the historic Madaket ferry, and enjoy more than 20 local beaches, parks, and nature preserves.
