Region Cities & Map

Surrounded by ancient redwoods in the heart of Sonoma County and just a few miles inland from the spectacular Sonoma Coast, the Russian River area invites you to explore, play or just relax. This region has embraced travelers since the railroads linked it to San Francisco in 1877. Today, charming towns like Forestville, Rio Nido, Guerneville welcome visitors to their local shops and galleries. Or maybe you're looking for a cup of coffee, a homemade pastry, or a farm-to-table lunch in  Monte Rio, Cazadero, and Duncans Mills – the whole county is known for great wines and locally made foods.

And no matter what your accommodation style is – from camping to luxury resorts and everything in between – travelers of any budget can find places here. The best way to see the area is to get outside. Hike through the majestic Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve. Or cycle roads that are fit for beginners or professionals. If paddling down the river in a kayak or canoe is on your must-do list, make sure to check out Sonoma County's safety tips for water activities here.
