Help deciding between 4 bikes

I ride a very old huffy with my kids but need an upgrade because now they are old enough to go on trails. With this pandemic it has depleted inventory. I am 5’7” Woman and am comfortable riding a bike. Just looking to go on paved or gravel paths with the family. Looking to be comfortable since I won’t be going at high speeds. I am worried about picking the right tire... there is a big difference in the width. Not sure what to go with. I assume I was looking for a hybrid style with and upright position. Here are my only options in the stores around me.
(trek is all sold out)

1.- KHS Westwood (mens style)
*tires 700/38c
2.- Liv/Giant Sedona DX (Woman style)
*tires 26 x 2.3
3.- Fuji Crosstown 2.1 (woman style)
*tires 700/38c
4.- KHS town and country 150 (mens style)
*tires 26/2.0

any thought on these models. I have only been on the Westwood so far. It was so easy to rise com paired to my huffy. Ha ha ha. But anything would be an upgrade.

thank you soo much!!!

Take a personal test ride on each of your possible choices. That will tell you more
than any sales pitch. Also, don't have too many choices, narrow it down to three
or four max.

They all look decent; test ride as many as you can and if none of them really stand out for you, go with the shop you like best. And please let us know which one you choose!
