Victorian Homes Galore
Prior to last Memorial Day Weekend, I must have heard of Eureka many times. But, our trip there last week was our real first visit. We didn't just drive through town, we stayed and explored. I was dumbfounded by the number of beautiful old Victorian houses and buildings I saw in the historic town of Eureka. To be honest, I'm no stranger to Victorian homes. We have thousands of them in San Francisco. However, I just never really tire of seeing them especially since each one has its own design and character. This part of town was hands down very picturesque.
It was a Saturday afternoon when we arrived and many stores were beginning to close for the day. I must say, it was eerily quiet and deserted. However, the bayfront was lively. Restaurants were packed and we saw locals in the streets.
We were so heartbroken at first when we saw our hotel's location but we sure were glad we stayed.
Here's what we saw during our walk in the town's streets.
