Avenue of the Giants Marathon
A runners dream. Runners World Magazine calls it "one of the most beautiful courses in the country". This annual event happens every May and you should register early and find lodging because accommodations fill up fast!
100 Main Street, Scotia, Ca 707-764-5338 www.thescotiainn.com
Located in one of the nation's longest surviving company towns (home of the Pacific Lumber Company) the Scotia Inn is an absolute must see! Great food, rich in history and beautifully maintained since 1923!
This Victorian Village really is a "step back in time". Beautifully restored and maintained Victorian homes and businesses make even just a walk down Main Street worth the short drive off the 101.
