Northern California/Oregon

We are driving from Pacific Grove, CA all the way to Cannon Beach, Oregon. We plan to stay overnight in Mendocino, CA, Brookings, and Yachats, OR before we end in Cannon Beach. Any suggestions for "must see/do" things along the way? Thanks.

How long for this trip? What time of year? Many roads are closed right now. You could spend weeks on this trip. Many days just in Mendocino County and many days in Humbolt. Just today Hwy 20 is closed. We need more info to be able to help.

In January I spent a week in the Point Arena area ~ drove up to Mendocino, then back down the Shoreline to Oakland.

Please read my Trip Report on the Point Arena Forum for details.

We will spend 1 night each in Mendocino, Brookings, Yachats, and then 2 nights in Cannon Beach. So not a lot of time to wander but wanted at least one "must see" place in each area. Thanks.

The Redwoods (Crescent City, CA and to the immediate south) would be a rewarding experience. Jedidiah Smith State Park, Avenue of the Giants or Drury Scenic Loop provide easy access.
