In California, view the world's tallest trees in spectacular Redwood National Park and along Avenue of the Giants, a quiet 2-lane road that winds through some of the world’s most spectacular scenery with ancient redwood trees. You’ll even have the opportunity to see an 1,800-year-old redwood! In the famous wine-making region of Sonoma, visit a local winery where you’ll have the opportunity to sample some fantastic wines.
