Welcome to the website for the City of Eureka!
Situated along the spectacular coast of Northern California, the City of Eureka is the county seat of Humboldt County and is the largest coastal city between San Francisco, California and Portland, Oregon. Eureka is bordered on one side by the beautiful Humboldt Bay and on the other side by mountains teeming with forests, rivers and wildlife.
This historic port city serves as the center for government, health care, commerce, international trade, agriculture and arts for California’s North Coast. Also as the largest community adjacent to the world’s tallest living things, the Coast Redwoods, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and dozens of related parks, Eureka serves as district headquarters for the California State Parks system, National Weather Service and the Six Rivers National Forest.
Eureka is a world-class city where pride abounds. But most of all Eureka is a friendly community that loves to share its legacy and future with visitors. Eureka is the economic center of the Northern California Coast and our historic downtown, open spaces, art galleries, amazing restaurants and waterfront are open to everyone.
Appreciate it all by visiting soon—and in person!
