We are traveling next week to see the Redwoods. We have 2 days planned before we spend 2 days in San Francisco. We are planning to stay in Santa Cruz, because that seemed the most central place for us to explore the Redwoods at Big Basin and Henry Cowell. We can't wait to ride the Steam Train at Henry Cowell state Park (a surprise for my train enthusiast 6 year old).
Can you recommend any nice hotels that would be convenient in that area? I'm having a hard time finding a map that shows the hotels that are in the center of where we want to be.
