Forestville

If you follow the two-lane Highway 116 as it winds its way through central Sonoma County’s Russian River Valley, the ribbon of roadway becomes known as Front Street for the three blocks where it bisects “downtown” Forestville (pop. 3,293).

Check out the renowned Nightingale Breads, which uses a wood-fired oven to produce fragrant European-style loaves and other baked goods. Visit the Tiny Town Café for a cup of coffee and some local conversation, or taste local vintages in Forestville’s tasting rooms and nearby wineries. 

When it's time to eat, dining options in Forestville include burgers, pizza, deli delights, Italian, Mexican, and more. Just outside of town, the Michelin-starred Farmhouse Inn & Restaurant offers superb service, a fantastic wine list, and a seasonal farm-to-table gourmet menu.

Recreational opportunities abound. Access the Russian River at Sunset Beach River Park, Steelhead Beach Regional Park, and Mom’s Beach (aka Forestville River Access). Explore the waterway with help from Burke’s Canoe Trips, which offers canoes, kayaks, shuttle service and riverside campsites.
