Retaining the ambiance of a bygone era, the tiny town of Geyserville (pop. 862) charms its visitors with Wild West storefronts, wooden boardwalks, world-renowned Sonoma County wines, scrumptious cuisines, and much more.
Located in the beautiful Alexander Valley and settled in the mid-1800s, Geyserville owes its name and beginnings to the discovery of geothermal springs in the Mayacamas Mountains just east of town. The springs became a tourist attraction and the town provided food and lodgings for the tourists.
Today, it's a magnet for bicyclists, artists, photographers, and those who simply love the picturesque and unique. Geyserville's Main Street offers a lot to explore.
Start in the middle of the block with a cup of coffee and a chance to chat with locals at Geyserville Coffee Company. Then take your time browsing through local shops offering fine art, antiques, collectibles, crafts, gifts, and more. For those who want to stay a little longer, the options include inns, vacation rentals, and campgrounds. When it's time to eat there are many choices, such as classic burgers, basic and gourmet pizza, Italian, California cuisine, and more.
For a complete change of pace, outside of town the River Rock Casino is home to more than 1,000 slot machines, 20 gaming tables, a full-service bar, and a penny slot lounge. And the casino's Quail Run Buffet offers a full-course buffet and outdoor patio dining with a stunning 180-degree Wine Country view of Alexander Valley.
