Summary of Humboldt County, CA and the surrounding communities of Eureka, Ferndale, McKinleyville, Fortuna, Arcata and Trinidad, CA
The city of Eureka (population 28,000) is located next to Humboldt Bay and is less than an hour away from the prestigious Redwood National Park. Eureka is known for its beautifully preserved “Old Town Eureka” comprised of both residential and commercial Victorian-style buildings, great shopping and restaurants. If you are interested in art, there are many galleries and museums from which to choose.
Other than being known for its stunning art and architecture, this bustling seaport town is also recognized for being the greatest Pacific coastal city between San Francisco and Oregon. A few of Eureka’s main attractions include the Fort Humboldt State Historic Park, the Morris Graves Museum of Art, and the Sequoia Park and Zoo. Eureka is also known for being the largest oyster farming area on the West Coast.
Located roughly 2.5 miles from downtown Eureka, Cutten is a great place to relax and enjoy the sunny weather and beautiful redwoods. Cutten is a small yet highly desirable area to live and is located just walking distance from the Sequoia Park Zoo as well as Cutten Realty.
With a population of about 17, 000 people, Arcata is a small college town conveniently located on the northern shore of Humboldt Bay just 3 miles from McKinleyville and 7 miles from Eureka.
