Northern Coast Road Trip - Sacramento to 128 through Wine Country to Hwy 1 to Redwood Nat'l Park

Jump to last reply

Looking to enjoy our 30th anniversary along the northern coast first week of October.

We are open to any scenic options. Wine country not as important as redwoods... but a stop or two for tasting will be fun. Love beautiful scenery.

Here are our thoughts so far...

Mon, 9/30
Sacramento to Hwy 128 & stop at one or two wineries. Since we are only hitting a couple, what are your favs? We like all cabs & pinot noirs, chards & sparkling.
Continue on 128 into Elk or Mendocino for one night on the coast.
The Little River Inn looks nice. littleriverinn.com/lodging/oceanview-bayside…

Tues, 10/1
1 to 101N to Humbolt State Redwoods - Ave of Giants. Take a hike, do some exploring. Stay one night anywhere b/w Garberville & Trinidad. Considering Shelter Cove, even with the 1 hr drive in.

Wed, 10/2
101N stopping along the way for exploration, Fern Canyon, etc.
Stay 2 nights at Bed and Bread Hiouchi on the Smith river in Klamath. http://bnbhiouchi.com/rooms-and-rates/

Thurs, 10/3
Explore Redwood Nat'l Park

Fri, 10/4
Drive back toward Sacramento (flying back to Chicago on Sat):

101S to 20E & stay 1 night b/w Clearlake area & Sacramento - Any ideas for lodging? I'm reading that Clearlake is stinky... literally. Any ideas for a nice room $150-$200 for one night on a Friday?
This will be a long day of driving, so it will be nice to relax and have a nice dinner. Also thinking about 101S to Hwy 128 and staying somewhere along the way. Again, finding a nice room in our budget for one night is tough.

Would appreciate your input. We're open pretty much to anything at this point.

Thanks!
