Plan my Point Arena trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Boston to Point Arena is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Boston to Point Arena. Traveling from Boston in April, you will find days in Point Arena are a bit warmer (72°F), and nights are about the same (44°F). Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Fort Bragg.
