Hi everyone -- we are planning to fly into Sacramento third week of August, 5 nights, family with 2 teenagers. We would like to visit Redwood National Park or Yosemite; would like to spend time on the coast/beach. Like outdoors more than city/shopping/museums. First time to Northern CA area, so it is all new and special to us. Any help in planning is greatly appreciated. Some specific questions --
(1) can we visit both Redwood and Yosemite in the time we have?
(2) if we should visit only one, which one is better?
(3) we are vegetarians so wondering about lodging at these parks and food.
(4) are we too late in planning a trip here for August?
Many thanks in advance!
