Don't miss the Eureka Old Town area. Because Eureka is an older lumber town the buildings are unique and elaborate. The city is well known for its many victorian structures. One of the Old Town victorians, the Carson Mansion, is recognized internationally as a premier structure of its type.

One of our favorite displays is the Romano Gabriel gardens. It is located at 315 Second Street. Romano Gabriel was the son of a furniture maker. He lived in Eureka from about 1946 to his death in 1977. In his front yard he had a wonderful collection of humorous and delightful home crafted art. His works were moved and are now housed behind glass in an alcove on second street. It's delightful and fun to see.

The Old Town has a board walk that fronts Humboldt bay that starts at First and C street. It goes to F street. The Old Town has some wonderful historic buildings. It is safe to stroll the area. There are some great coffee houses and bakeries as well as restaurants.Fine dining options include the five star rated Carter House with a superb wine cellar and beautiful lodging options. Many other dining options are available in the District. The antiques in the lodging rooms at the Eagle House will impress. Eureka has been recognized as one of the top 100 art regions in the USA. Galleries and works in all types of mediums can be found during a pleasant stroll through this visually impressive area. Many visitors don't go to the West of A st: the free lunch sometimes attracts colorful people.
