We are planning an 8-day trip to the Redwoods in mid-April. We fly into San Jose and will arrive about 4 p.m. on a Friday, where we will rent a car.
What's the best driving route to get to Crescent City? We get in lateafternoon and I believe it's a fairly lengthy drive. Any suggestions about where to stop for the night? Will traffic be too heavy to get into SF?
I chose Crescent City because it's near Jed Smith. But we are open to other suggestions as well. I'm looking for clean, mid-range recommendations that run $150-$160/night.
This is my husband's first trip to Northern CA and I haven't been since I was a kid. It's our 25th Anniversary and I'd like to make it special.
