The redwood forest in Northern California is one of America’s most iconic landmarks. Surrounded by some of the world's tallest trees, travelers will discover a variety of outdoor activities. From camping and kayaking to searching for Bigfoot, here are five ideas to help plan your trip to the Redwood National and State Parks.
Explore the Avenue of the Giants
The Avenue of the Giants, a 31-mile stretch of road along old Highway 101 on the California coast, offers views of coastal redwoods, ocean shoreline, grasslands and small rural towns. Visitors can stop at restaurants, campgrounds and attractions along the way, amid 350-foot-tall trees that have stood for thousands of years. For a unique experience, dine in the Eternal Tree House Café in Humboldt County, which boasts a “20-foot room inside a 2,500-year-old living tree.”
