    My favorite northern CA experience was going through the Avenue of the Giants. Peaceful and majestic, the pictures don’t do it justice.

    You could spend as short or long a time as you want meandering around the multiple connecting trails here. Gorgeous big trees and lots of stumps to climb and fallen trees to balance on to bring a little fun with kids. Dog friendly!

    This is a magical place for a short walk up the canyon. You MUST HAVE a permit (I think it's a new requirement.) Got ours online. We went in early June, and our feet definitely got wet. We just brought an extra pair of shoes. Some people were walking in water sandals, but it's rocky and might be difficult in sandals. You've never seen such amazing green! Very beautiful! The walk in and out takes less than an hour, but there is a longer loop trail if you're feeling ambitious and your feet aren't too cold.

    Always the best way to start the weekend in Arcata. The amazing produce, music, and wonderful local farmers at the Market always puts a smile on my face.

    Giant trees, Roosevelt Elk, and great hiking trails, what more do you need? Love this park for hiking and scenic drives. The trails that start at the visitor's center are a great place to start.

    Took an hour ish to go around one loop of trails. Old rail tracks, ducks, a snake, and info placards gave us things to view as we walked. Cool conservation story behind the marsh and easy to access for a little nature in town

    Absolutely stunning Victorian mansion right near the beach. The cupola can be seen from many vantage points in town and this is quite a handsome landmark.

    The owners of this inn are a lovely couple who are very hospitable, attentive, homey and professional. My grandmother and I shared a room in the Viola room which is stunning and has lots of natural lighting. The beds and pillows were very comfortable and the sheets felt great! We loved having the electric fire place too! We had a meal in the restaurant below and the food was delicious. The wine by the glass menu could be improved. Other than that I would come back here.

    Had some time to kill before catching my flight and stopped at the zoo and park. It was a nice walk and a great place to stretch my legs. Park is very pretty and worth a visit. Wasn't crowded, cool walking amongst the trees. Lots of noise from the street and the street wasn't a great place to leave your car (signs about not leaving valuables, a couple of vehicles with a bunch of folks sitting on the sidewalk smoking pot - totally legal but they were blocking the path and weren't friendly).

    This is a wonderful hike that is family friendly for all. The trail is well marked, well maintained but muddy, which surprised me. You can hike a mile to the waterfall and then head back the same way or continue and do the entire trail which ends up around 2+ miles.

    We took a detour on our road trip through the Avenue of Giants that runs through the Humbolt Redwood State Park. This was one of the most beautiful highlights of our vacation. We stopped at a couple of places, one that was just a pull off from the road, the other had a nice walking trail that led down to the Eel River. The color of the water in the river is the most beautiful turquoise color and there were wildflowers in bloom everywhere. Just walking around the trees that are so huge makes you feel so small, it left us in awe. I would stop here again if we make it back for a West Coast road trip a second time.

    This is the first place headed north on the 101 where you know you are in an amazing forest. The grove is fairly small but it will make a big impression on you when you see these trees. They are massive and they come right up next to the road. I wish we could of stop but we were trying to get to Redwood National Park.

    Cute little zoo, we stopped because of the sky walk which was beautiful. Not a ton of animals like a major zoo but we were happy to see they seemed well cared for and healthy. Food was way too expensive.
