Eureka is a Victorian seaport town located on the northern Mendocino Coast, well-known for its' Victorian architecture and historical museums. Eureka's "Old Town," which is situated near the waterfront, has been carefully restored to its' original 1800s glory. Old Town is a delightful place to shop, stroll and dine -or take a ride in a horse-drawn carriage. Many of Eureka's frequent fairs and festivals take place on the streets of Old Town. Eureka is an excellent city for history buffs with several worthwhile museums. The Clark Memorial Museum includes an extensive collection of artifacts of the Yurok, Hupa and Karuk Indian tribes. The Humboldt Bay Maritime Museum contains lighthouse displays and other maritime memorabilia, and operates its own cruise boat, which is one of the oldest passenger vessels in the country. Eureka is also home to the Fort Humboldt Museum and State Historical Park, and the waterfront along Humboldt Bay is another great place to stroll and watch the fishing boats and pleasure craft coming and going. Eureka was named as one of "America's Best Small Art Towns," and has a growing Cultural Arts District. For outdoor recreation, there are over 40 parks, forests, reserves and recreation areas near Eureka; as well as 110 miles of beaches, cliffs and coves, six wild and scenic rivers and coastal lagoons.

Eureka Weather & Climate

The scenic redwoods coast area of Northern California has a mild year round climate that is completely dominated by the Pacific Ocean. This region that is located approximately two hours south of the Oregon State line experiences frequent and abundant rain October through April. These months account for about 90 percent of the annual precipitation, which averages 40 inches. The months of June through September are generally dry. Warm summer days are marked by low clouds and fog which usually dissipates by early afternoon with sunny conditions remaining until late evening when low clouds move back in. Temperatures are quite moderate with the annual range being one of the smallest in the lower 48 states. Fall is marvelous along the northern coast with warm, sunny days and calm ocean conditions. Areas over the coastal mountains, as close as 40 miles away, can have a much greater range of temperature than the coastal areas.
