Eureka was founded by gold miners in 1850, who were so excited by their find that they proudly named if after the state's ancient Greek motto meaning "I have found it"
Along the waterfront is Eureka's interesting old town with its restored 19th-century buildings, due to the large number of historic buildings here, it has been dubbed by many as the "Williamsburg of the West".
Many of these have been turned into cafes and restaurants, it's a really pleasant place to sit with a coffee and watch the world go by. We love Lost Coast Brewery and Cafe..
Eureka is an ideal place to stay to visit Redwood National Park, which is home the tallest trees on earth! These giant sequoias live up to 2000 years and grow up to 110 metres.

Where you stay is the heart of your holiday. Location reigns supreme but do you prefer resort facilities or unique and boutique? Historic and old world or modern and shiny?
We aim to present choices across the spectrum but there are many hundreds of places to stay and not room to feature them all. Do speak to your Bon Voyage travel consultant and click the video for our take on this important topic.
We would rate the Bellagio as one of the best hotels we have ever stayed in. Fabulous, glitzy, exciting. We loved having breakfast at the poolside café... one of our best experiences ever. If it hadn't been for you we wouldn't have had the suite or cabana and we loved them. We both agreed that the hotel was the best for us and you had suggested that so well done!Leonore & Mike Rumford
