Explore the Redwoods: They are all around Eureka!
The Redwood forests of Northern California are some of the most unique woods in the United States. The forest is comprised of Coastal Redwood trees, ancient arbor giants that stand at almost 300 feet tall in some cases. Many of these trees are centuries old and live over 2000 years in many cases. Being in the presence of these giant trees is a awe-inspiring experience that reminds you just how small you really are. Besides the Redwoods National Park, there are about a dozen state parks that feature these giants, and provide great aceess and trails. All are an easy drive from Eureka.

On the Beaches and Waterfront
The beauty of Eureka doesn’t just lie in the forests. The city is also located on the coast of California, meaning you can experience coastal beauty and forests in one day. In 1996, the city built a great network of walking trails along the beaches and coastline that make up the coast of Eureka. It’s a quiet area that more tourists are starting to learn about and take advantage of. Some trails are still under construction.

Beautiful Hotel!

“I stayed here on a coastal trip and really loved it. The room looked like they have been recently renovated, although some things still needed attention. It didn’t bother us though. Staff was great, breakfast was excellent and we loved being able to take a walk on the beach in the morning. We will defintiely stay here again.” – FLORIDA Keys TRIPADVISOR GUEST
