Northern California Eureka Hotel

A fantastic place to visit, especially during the sunny days, Eureka in Northern California is a rugged, romantic city overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With lots of rain that is favorable for the redwood trees abundant here, this wonderful place will enchant you with its exquisite beauty. Giant redwoods that hug the hills and mountains next to the California Coast make Eureka one of the Northern coastal hot vacation destinations due to its prominent culture, art and great food. From the wine country influence to the fascinating activities and events, Eureka features museums, a zoo, great shopping and beautiful Victorian houses.

Open roads and scenic highways that meander through pristine forests next to beaches and bays are inviting to have a memorable journey that will surround you in fragrant, woodsy tones, and will provide a real feast for the senses. Inside a redwood grove you can look up and faintly see the sky peaking through the trees, smell the scent of the 2000-year old growth and hear the beautiful sounds of silence broken only by your own footsteps. It is hard to find a better place to refresh and rejuvenate the soul, feeling yourself a part of nature.
