  • Fort Humboldt State Historic Park was definitely for me among the positive surprises in Eureka. We went here more out of boredom, because we had already driven off all other sights. And Lo and behold: the Fort Humboldt is really a historical place.

In addition, you get well conveyed, how it is at the time dealt with the Indians here.

  • Don't go on Tuesday or Wednesday, the hospital is closed. Lots of cool stuff to see. Very easy walk.
  • A wonderful look into the history of Humboldt.
  • Great attraction in the middle of Eureka. This park has a short loop hike with well kept information signs and historical buildings.
  • This place is super cool. Expecially on Saturday because they have train rides!
  • It's April Fools for me, I guess. Saturday...have waited an hour past scheduled opening time - no one to be found, with park entrance gates locked. Called number listed and got general recorded CA parks service. Oh, well!
