Review of Eureka, California

Pathetic slum
Star Rating - 9/30/2015
We have been going to the northern coast and visiting Eureka for years and years. It has deteriorated to a pathetic low of lows. Homeless and tweekers have taken over. In a 2 hour period we saw at least 5 people stumbling, drunk as skunks, on the sidewalk in the middle of the day. Beggars everywhere. It seems like so much money was wasted on Riverwalk or whatever revitalization that was done. The police and infrastructure obviously can't keep up on the druggies. We saw one person driving around just randomly screaming at people out of his car window. The streets are dirty. Businesses are shut down. Just pathetic and sad.
