My questions are this:
a) How is the drive to the Redwoods in terms of traffic and road congestion from Union Square?
We were thinking of doing a tour to the Redwoods as we are staying at the Hotel Rex in Union Square, and a tour probably would be easier, but if we rent a car it would be less expensive and we could take our time.
It looks like from mapquest that the majority of the driving is on RT 101. I have never been to San Fran or L.A.,so I am wondering if the traffic and congestion is the same that I hear about in Los Angeles?
B) Any where else to stop and visit either going or coming back ? (we know about Sausalito).
