From a journalists’s point of view, the Redwood Coast is still relatively unknown, giving your audience the novelty and excitement of discovering a destination that’s off the beaten path but destined to become one of California’s favorite vacation spots.
The Redwood Coast is a gold mine of great travel articles, with its stunning natural beauty and incredible outdoor recreation, its thriving arts and fascinating history, and its small-town charm replete with interesting people, businesses and events.
