  • This is truly a hidden gem and not to be missed if you are traveling to northern California. Charming places to stay with good restaurants, which was a nice surprise!  more »
  • The drive down to the bottom is steep through the redwoods. The view of this iconic route 1 bridge from the beach is just as shown. Hiking in the redwoods to the falls is a must-do.  more »
