Spend the Day on the Russian River

Russian River Resort Area is everything you remember… and more! Whether you came here with your parents or your grandparents; you brought your own kids here when they were young; or the area simply represents everything you always wanted in a vacation, the Redwood studded banks of this river wonderland await you.

Rent a kayak and float the lazy river, hop on a Stand Up Paddle Board; stretch out under an umbrella at Johnson’s Beach; Stroll downtown and take an Art Walk, then sample some of Sonoma County’s finest culinary temptations.

Lace up your hiking boots and take a trail in Armstrong State Natural Reserve, where the giant centurion Redwoods will whisper their secrets. Or head up the bohemian Highway and take a Zipline through the Redwoods.

Should you tire of the quiet and peaceful solitude, Russian River’s nightlife has much to offer, with a great selection of venues offering frequent live music and entertainment. In a short, but scenic drive you will find the Sonoma Coast’s rugged shorelines and alluring beaches. From the bay side shops and restaurants of historic Bodega Bay to the breathtaking sunsets of Jenner by the Sea; from the genuine fort at Fort Ross to the challenging seaside links of Sea Ranch Golf Course, you will take with you lasting memories.

Rather taste some wine? Dozens of great wine tasting options are quite close, from Korbel’s Champagne Tours to Westside Road’s many unique wineries, all on the road to Healdsburg. And now, right on Guerneville’s Main Street, you can taste wine at several tasting rooms. In Forestville, sample local wine at four different tasting rooms.

Whatever your agenda, or lack of agenda, Russian River Resort Area offers a wonderland of adventures. Or the quiet you crave.
