You’ll Fall In Love With This Charming River Town In Northern California
While Northern California certainly has some beautiful cities, we also have many small towns that are simply charming. Guerneville is a little river town, and once you visit it, you’ll definitely fall in love.
Guerneville is located right on the Russian River, in the Russian Valley of Sonoma County.
The little town has less than 5,000 residents, which makes it the perfect place to spend some time. I's not too big, so you'll get that small-town vibe, but not too small, so you'll find plenty of amenities.
You'll find quaint little shops and restaurants on Guerneville's Main Street. Boon Eat + Drink is one example of a great spot to eat.
This cute little restaurant has excellent food, and it's famous for its flash-fried Brussels sprouts.
Seriously - you have to try these! Boon Eat + Drink is at 16248 Main Street.
In this little town, recreation is all about the river.
Johnson's Beach is a favorite spot for sunning yourself on the beach...
...or renting a paddle boat...
Or, just floating lazily in the river with your friends (and a beer, if you'd like).
Find the beach at 16217 First Street, Bottom of Church Street.
You'll never get tired of the stunning Russian River.
It's the perfect place for recreation, and to bond with your friends and family.
As if the river didn't provide enough gorgeous scenery to this little town, Armstrong Redwood State Reserve is right here in Guerneville.
Take a hike to see the park and bask in this beautiful redwood forest.
Guerneville River Park gives you some great views of the Russian River, and is a wonderful place for a picnic or short hike.
It's located at 13811 State Highway 116.
The Russian River Jazz and Blues Festival takes place here every September.
This year's festival runs September 9th and 10th. Visit the
for more information.
Guerneville has plenty of adorable cabins and cottages to rent for the weekend.
