Things to Do

Russian River - The Russian River Valley is still the gay nerve center of Sonoma and a stunningly scenic one at that. Whether you float down the river in summer, hike the neighboring woods at any time of the year, or simply stroll down Main Street in Guerneville, the Russian River Valley is a time capsule of gay life in the North Bay area that must be experienced.


Coastal Drive - There aren't many spots in America the very existence of which recommends them as highly as the portion of Highway 1 that runs along the coast of Sonoma. Plan an afternoon cruise with stops in Fort Ross, Jenner, and Bodega Bay,and be sure to leave lots of time to stop and take in the views which are basically cinema ready.


Mellow Out at Goat Rock Beach

Located in Jenner, just south of the Russian River's outlet to the sea, Goat Rock Beachprovides views of immense sea stacks, white-capped waves, and sand dunes. Goat Rock Beach is part of the Sonoma Coast State Park, a series of beaches stretching along 17 miles of the Sonoma County coastline. Located Just south of the Russian River's outlet to the sea, Goat Rock provides views of immense sea stacks, white-capped waves, and sand dunes. Gulls, sandpipers, and other seabirds peck at the wave line for tasty morsels, beachcombers search for washed-up treasure, and the occasional angler casts a line in hopes of a tasty smelt or rockfish dinner.

Photograph Exceptional Rhododendron Blooms

It's only 317 acres, but Kruse Rhododendron State Natural Reserve , a few miles south of Gualala, offers one of the prettiest walks you'll ever find, especially during mid-April through mid-June.

That's the best time to glory in the reserve's spectacular rhododendron blooms - vibrant pink flowers that seem to glow against the surrounding green forest of second-growth redwoods, Douglas fir and tanbark oak.

Five miles of hiking trails weave through the Reserve, the spring streams are running, and you'll also see lots of ferns and coast-loving wildflowers. Learn more about Gualala's Kruse Rhododendron State Reserve.
