Russian River Adventures

Sonoma Family Adventures Blog

Road Trip to Lucky Bend Lookout

River Rd is fastest. Hwy 116 is scenic & avoids Santa Rosa traffic. Hwy 1 & Bohemian Hwy is very scenic. Look for the break in road stripes as you approach the final turn on to Riverside Drive.

Guerneville Basics

Everything you need to enjoy a weekend on the Russian River from grocery stores to entertainment to emergency services.

Russian River Fun for Kids

Our nearly comprehensive recommendations on Fun Places to Go, Family Dining, and Kid-Friendly Wineries. Be sure to scroll down the full list.

Floating the Russian River

Plan 3-5 hrs for floating. Bring water shoes as riverbed & beaches are gravel. Afternoon winds can blow you up river so go early.

Sonoma Epicurean Adventure

Take day to indulge in an epicurean adventure through the beautiful western Sonoma country-side. This day trip loop starts with artisan bread in Freestone followed by artisanal cheeses and yogurts and finishes strong with a couple of great wineries. NOTE: Creameries typically require appointments so be sure to call ahead!

Winery Progressive Bocce Tournament

One of our favorite adventures is to have a progressive bocce tournament between several wineries. Nothing goes better with a game of bocce than a glass of wine. Play a game and drink a glass at each winery and by the time you are done with your tournament no one will care what the score was.

Russian River Outdoor Adventures

West Sonoma County is really all about enjoying two things; food and the outdoors. This extensive list has a broad range of activities including lounging on the beach, hiking, golfing, cycling, canoe/kayaking, and climbing.

Favorite Russian River Dining

Guerneville was named by Food & Wine Magazine as one of America's Best Little Food Towns. Western Sonoma County is so close to the farming culture and the excellent food is proof.

Northern California Coastal Breweries

It takes good beer and good spirits to make good wine!
