During a time of COVID-19 when families are itching to explore, taking a road trip seems to fill the bill. For 78-miles, the Redwood Highway Scenic Drive “parallels the rugged Pacific coast, passing redwood groves and the wave-carved shoreline of beaches, cliffs and sea stacks.”
“California’s coastal redwoods are the world’s tallest living things. Walking beneath a 300-foot forest canopy among these silent giants from the age of the dinosaurs is an unforgettable experience.”
Must stops: Redwood National and State Parks … all of them. Trees of Mystery is a fun family stop, about 36 miles south of the Oregon boarder. For the latest in National Parks’ camping information (click here).
