6) Redwood National and State Parks
A combination of both national and state parks, the Redwood Parks cover over 133,000 acres of redwood forests, oak woodlands, blooming prairies and roughly 40 miles of jagged coastline. In an effort to educate and inspire the world for generations to come, these parks protect approximately 45% of the remaining redwood trees. Known as the tallest trees in the world, the redwoods are also giant in girth. The majestic look these wooded monoliths possess is due to their sheer stature, giving onlookers a different perspective of their place in the world. Hiking and camping are allowed and encouraged. An overnight stay among such trees may be necessary to fully appreciate their beauty and magnitude.
