After lunch, continue north on Highway 101 stopping at the Chandelier Drive-thru Tree for a photo opp. (Which of our cars will fit through the tree?). We then continue north through the Avenue of the Giants ending in Eureka, CA. Dinner (included) will be at at the historic Samoa Cookhouse, the last remaining cookhouse in the West. A block of rooms are reserved at the Red Lion Hotel Eureka.


This tour ends on Friday evening. However, you are welcome to spend the weekend on your own attending the Fortuna Redwood AutoXpo in Fortuna or exploring the redwoods.


We arranged a block of 15 rooms at the Red Lion Hotel in Eureka at a discounted rate from $140/night plus tax. This is out of pocket. You will need to call (707) 445-0844 and let them know you are with the Diablo PCA to book your own room. You may book for one or two evenings. These rooms will be released on July 5, 2019. Other accomodations may be available but many of the hotels are booked due to the Fortuna Redwood AutoXpo. I encourage you to make your arrangements ASAP.
