The City of Eureka, with a population of 28,600 (and another 14,000 just outside city limits) is located on Humboldt Bay, with the Pacific Ocean to the west and mountains and forests to the east, north and south. It is the North Coast’s largest coastal town north of San Francisco and the principal city and county seat of Humboldt County.
