Might be moving to Eureka

by dkfowler

Hi.

My wife and I are thinking about moving to Eureka, CA. We know nothing about the town and it has been very hard to find good info on it. We are in our early 30's and enjoy the outdoors (originally from Alaska). We used to live in Portland, OR and loved it there. Enjoyed the small(er) town, nightlife, bars, music scene and outdoors.

Can someone tell me a little about Eureka? Really want to get a feel for how the city is before we make a trip to visit.

Thanks

David

Eureka is very small. When I was up there at school, the only nightlife to be found was centered around the college kids. Everything is pretty much closed by 10pm. It's been over 10 years since I spent a lot of time there, but I doubt things have changed that much. Don't remember much of a music scene. Lots of fishing & plenty of hiking. Lots of 'interesting' or 'unusual' people. The pulp mill makes the whole town stink and it's foggy a lot. It's very isolated - hard to get in & out of. I think that's what drove me nuts the most. To get to anywhere big or even mid-sized you have to drive for hours on crooked roads. Best of luck with your visit & decision.

If you liked Portland you'll probably like Eureka as well. Its kind of dreary and quite wet. Personally, Eureka is a depressing place. The economy is lousy, with no relief in sight. The place is truly isolated and has a disproportionate share of 45-60 year old hippies who seem to dominate the political scene.

What it does have is a gorgeous coastal location and of course the redwoods and cool weather during the summer. Anyway, visit and see what you think. I occasionally visit to escape interior CA heat during the summer, but wouldn't live there.

Eureka and much of Humboldt county is kind of a mixing pot of people. Eureka has gone down hill a little in the last ten years... with the loss of legitimate work much of the county depends on marijuana sales. This has led to other drug use and more poverty... especially in Eureka which is the largest town in Humboldt county. However, there are also a lot of good people around Eureka and it has its advantages. There is a lot of outdoor recreation available. With the redwood forests and surrounding mountains butting up to the Pacific ocean, you get a pretty unique atmosphere. Within 1-2 hours you can find a wide arrange of recreation. The music and nightlife scenes aren't much... but there are plenty of bars. Expect a lot of rain. Some areas of Humboldt county get 80 inches of rain a year, and the redwood forests are actually considered rainforests.

Travel Tips for Eureka

Arcata! THis town rocks. ...

by Michelle_R.

Arcata! THis town rocks. First, take a walk at the Arcata Marshes, and learn about the sustainable water treatment marshes this city uses to be eco-friendly. Tour the Humboldt State University - visit the CCAT house, which is run entirely on solar, water, and man power. CCAT has its own little water filtration marsh; the kids living in the house grow most of their food and are setting up a little fish farm to raise their own food.
The Minor Theatre shows second run movies for a dollar and fifty cents every day at 5:30.
Take a walk in Redwood Park just behind the college campus; its gorgeous! Every year the Annual Kinetic Race starts at the Plaza in Arcata - a fun experience especially for small kids. The Oyster Festival and the Bop N Brew beer fest are fun for adults.

Stroll through Humboldt Bay

by 807Wheaton

This area has a place for ships to dock and berth. There you will see the memorial to the fishermen of this area. This sculpture was done by Dick Crane. This is a very relaxing and pleasant place to spend part of a day.

Want to go back to school?

Just 10-15 miles north of Eureka is Arcata. College town for a University near us. It's called Humboldt State University.

Humboldt State University has consistently been cited among the top 10 percent of regional colleges and universities in the United States by a number of national publications, including U.S. News & World Report, Money, and Making A Difference College Guide.

Humboldt enrolls about 7,400 students in more than 100 degree and certificate programs. Founded as a school to train teachers in 1913, it was one of the first campuses of what would become the 23-campus California State University (CSU). Humboldt has become a vital, vibrant institution that fosters academic excellence and rich educational opportunities, innovative research, solutions to critical social problems, and a sense of community service among its students.

You can read more about it on their website.

Stop and Smell the Flowers

by cnango

My husband loves to take photos of flowers.This picture shows just one example of the many beautiful flowers we saw and photographed. I think Eureka is best enjoyed on foot so you can look close at the beautiful natural and architectural sights. Take a nice relaxing pace and of course stop and smell the flowers on the way.
