Travelling from Manchester England to Eureka - Best options?

by viracocha

Hi, my wife and I are visiting our Aunt who lives in Eureka in May, we can only manage a weeks vacation so are looking for the best way to get there, we have been to Eureka previously, drove up from San Francisco, but because of the short duration of the visit would like to fly, costs seem rather high from SFO so would welcome local insight if possible. Thanks in advance for your help

Alaska http://www.alaskaair.com has direct flight from/to Los Angeles(LAX) and Arcata/Eureka (ACV). Also from Portland, OR (PDX)
I hope it helps you.

RE: RE: Travelling from Manchester England to Eureka - Best options?

I'm not aware of any low-cost flight options for this route (they all seem to be ~$400pp/RT right now), but two other options...

1. Greyhound bus: http://www.greyhound.com
The ride is about 7 hours each way (from S.F.) and the cost is $96 RT for both of you (i.e. $48 ea/RT).

2. AmTrak: http://www.amtrak.com
The ride is still about 7 hours each way (again, from S.F.) but the cost is $180 RT for both ($90 ea/RT).

They don't save time, but might save money (rental car + gas is now $3/gallon in CA) and stress (let someone else do the driving).

A longshot idea: call United (the major carrier SFO-Eureka) and see if you can use miles and how many are necessary to purchase your tickets. Then, assuming you don't have United miles, go to a frequent flyer miles barter site and see if you can acquire the necessary miles for less cost.





Travel Tips for Eureka

Eureka Home to a Large Timber Industry

by cnango

Humboldt Bay is the largest natural bay between San Francisco and the Puget Sound in Washington State.Eureka sits on the shore of Humbolt Bay in the center of Californias Redwood Coastline. This heavily forested area did and still has a large timber industry. A very successful lumber business is how Mr Carson earned his fortune and was able to build his Mansion and other prestigeous Victorians in Eureka,

I was pretty awe struck watching the bargs in the harbor loading and hawling away loads of timber. So many trees trunks stacked so high on the barg. It was a massive undertaking and yet a common job in this region.

Avenue of the Giants

by Royal63

About an hour south of Eureka on Highway 101, you will see a sign for the 'Avenue of the Giants' . This is an alternate route that parallels the highway. Drive among the big Redwood trees, stop and have a picnic, jump in the river, or just observe the 51,222 acres of large trees & groves. When you approach a town named Weott, you will see signs where high water rose to in the 1964 flood. You will be amazed the river rose so high.

Eureka has just recently...

by pipster




Eureka has just recently finished refurbishing the marina area of old town and this seems to have added a much needed and long awaited additon to the area. Lots of boats and other recreational water activities will now invite area residents and tourists to the this part of the city. In the last couple of years, much work has gone into reclaiming the oldtown area from transient types with restaurants, hotels and great shopping.

Check Out the Pink Lady

by cnango

More than 10,000 Victorian homes line the streets of Eureka and "The Pink Lady" is a beautiful example. The landmark home was built and given as a wedding gift from the city founder and lumber baron, Mr Carson to his son.

Avenue of the Giants

by Tom_Fields

Running parallel to Highway 101, this scenic drive has many stopping points for those who want to hike through the redwood forests. Take your pick of trails; they're all worth it.

These trees often live thousands of years, and can grow to over 300 feet tall. That's largely because they are very hardy and resilient. Redwoods are highly resistant to parasites, and often regrow after a fire or lightning strike. A prime example of how tough they are is the Immortal Tree, which has survived fires, lightning, floods, and even attacks by loggers. Its age is estimated at nearly 1,000 years.

In death, the redwoods provide nourishment for new trees. So, the forest continually rejuvenates itself. Walking among these giant, ancient trees is a humbling experience, reminding us of how temporal we really are.
