The indigenous Wiyot people were Eureka's first inhabitants. Known for their fishing prowess, these Native Americans sustained themselves with the seafood that they caught in Eureka's waters. European-American settlers didn't find Eureka until the mid-1800s, as land features and weather conditions obscured its bay entrance from view. However, once they did discover it, the town began to grow quickly. Fishers, loggers, farmers, miners, and other professionals helped Eureka establish a strong and thriving economy.

While Eureka remains connected to its past, it also features modern facilities that delight residents and visitors alike, including boutique stores and great restaurants. On the first Saturday of each month, Eureka hosts Arts Alive, which is the area's largest regular arts and cultural event. The event invigorates the downtown area and brings many visitors to local art galleries, restaurants, and other businesses. Many annual events, including the Redwood Coast Music Festival, Redwood Acres Fair and Rodeo, and Christmas Truckers Parade, also bring the people of Eureka together. Throughout the year, Eureka's waterways and forests provide a host of recreational opportunities for people who enjoy communing with nature.

As the largest coastal city between San Francisco and Portland, Eureka is a popular stopover destination for many travelers. However, linger a little longer, and you'll discover that it's a charming city worthy of longer getaways.

When to Visit Eureka, CA

Eureka's Mediterranean climate brings warm weather year-round. Its summers are relatively cool and dry, with average highs throughout the season in the early to mid-60s. This is very cool for summers in a city with such a southerly latitude. Such comfortable conditions bring many tourists, so you should expect to pay more for your Eureka accommodation from June to August. Book early to avoid disappointment.

There is relatively little variation from one season to the next. In winter, average highs are pleasant, typically hovering around the mid-50s. While this is a welcome change from many American cities that experience much chillier conditions, winters in Eureka can be wet. While this won't stop you enjoying Eureka's museums and galleries, it can be disappointing if you love water sports and hiking.

Spring and fall provide the optimal conditions for visiting Eureka. The weather is usually picture-perfect, and there aren't a lot of other tourists, so you should find that accommodation is at its most affordable during the shoulder season.
