Eureka Hotels

With a rich history as a gold rush town, Eureka is named for the excited cries of miners as they found their fortune in the rolling green hills. This influx of people helped to build a quaint Victorian town, and much of this has been well preserved to this day, with historic storefronts and grand old houses that make it into many tourist's photo albums. Its location overlooking Arcata Bay also means there's plenty of areas of natural beauty to explore, with long stretches of rocky coastline.

Things to see

Fort Humboldt State Historic Park dates back to the 1850s when Native Americans clashed with settlers, and people flooded into the area to get their piece of the gold rush. The old clapboard hospital has been turned into a museum telling the story of the fort, with fascinating exhibitions showing how people lived back then, and at the Logging Museum you can see open air demonstrations of how logging was done in the 19th century using actual equipment from the time, and can take a ride on a miniature steam train to see more of the park's surroundings. The Bear River Casino lies just on the outskirts of town, perched on top of a hill and overlooking the rolling green fields beneath. Here you'll find bright and modern gaming facilities, with rows of flashing slot machines, table games, and a cozy poker den with regular tournaments. The casino also has several dining options, and after trying your luck at gaming you can relax in the large leather chairs of the lounge and watch popular local entertainers.
