    Why people love visiting historic Eureka

    The area's history and art galleries are just a few of the reasons to vacation in Eureka. This city's restaurants, shopping and seaside draw many visitors. With a vacation rental, you get a home away from home—many rentals offer full kitchens and outdoor grills for some home cooking.

    Time to go lumbering round the old town

    Take a stroll back in time to the days of the great lumber barons, with a wander round Eureka's historic old town. The sheer number of gorgeous Victorian properties mean it's listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and none of them are more celebrated than the iconic Carson Mansion. To get into Eureka's maritime spirit, take a Humboldt Bay cruise on the ferry boat, while if you're keen to get your boots on and sniff out some of the tallest trees in the world, then the giants of Redwood State Park are only a short drive away.

    Getting the most out of a Eureka vacation rental is a fine art

    Take a walk on the wild side with a visit to Sequoia Park Zoo, California's oldest zoo. With rare red pandas and farm exhibits for smaller aspiring zoologists, this pocket-sized wildlife experience has something for everyone. And when you're done there, why not check out the sequoia trees themselves in the neighboring park? The town features maritime and historical museums too, but above all else, it's the art scene that'll really make an impression on your Eureka vacation rental. There are masses of art galleries, with monthly art events regularly spilling out onto the streets of downtown Eureka.

    Play Misty for me

    The climate in Eureka has a lot to do with its coastal location. This part of the North Coast is prone to lovely atmospheric sea fog that only enhances that old-time Victorian vibe, and might make your Eureka vacation rental feel like a haunted house. This phenomenon is particularly common in summer, when the baking hot air coming from inland California meets the cool air of the coast. Winters are wet but not too cold, and summers are dry but relatively cool, thanks to the influence of the Pacific Ocean. Whatever the time of year, bring a raincoat.

    Tall trees and wandering whales in Eureka

    The largest coastal city between San Francisco and Portland, Eureka is situated on Humboldt Bay, and in the winter you might be lucky enough to catch gray whales migrating south. It was once home to California's super-rich lumber barons (hence the proliferation of grand mansions) and this information, along with the fact that Eureka is in Redwood County, should provide a clues as to one of the big draws of the area. Yep, it's the Californian redwoods. To see some of the most impressive specimens of this giant among trees, head to Redwood National Park, about 45 minutes from Eureka.
