Exploring Humboldt County Redwoods

Exploring the HUmboldt County Redwoods

A huge thank you to Best Western Plus Humboldt Bay Inn in Eureka, CA for hosting this portion of our trip. All opinions are mine alone.

When I was about 10 years old, my family went on an amazing California road trip. Well, okay, maybe it wasn’t super amazing. The van broke down before we reached the Redwoods, and the only rental car my parents were able to find while it was being fixed was a little Honda Accord. We had 4 adults and 3 kids. Mind you this was before seat belt laws and car seat laws were enforced. And the car had a bench seat in front. So we all squeezed in to the “clown car” as we called it and went on our trip and then went back to get our van. Part of that trip was exploring the Lower Humboldt County Redwoods.

Maybe it was that trip that made it a goal of mine to take my kids on a west coast road trip, I don’t know. Maybe I wanted to break the Redwoods curse (because our van broke down when we were going to go to the Redwoods last summer on our no good vacation). But we decided to give a go at it the end of March.  I will be sharing all about our epic West Coast road trip in the coming weeks, but today I want to focus on our time in Eureka, CA exploring the Lower Humboldt County Redwoods. From where we stayed, to what we did, check out the highlights below.
