Guerneville

— 3 nights
Guerneville is an unincorporated community and census-designated place in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County, California, United States.

There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Armstrong Redwood State Reserve, learn about winemaking at Stephen & Walker Winery, and don't miss a visit to Healdsburg Plaza.

Less than an hour from San Francisco, Sonoma County bills itself as the "Number 1 Wine Destination in the U.S." for good reason. Though not as famous as the neighboring Napa Valley, Sonoma County features a rolling landscape dotted with over 250 wineries. The county ranks among the country's most agriculturally productive regions. It turns out not only some of America's finest grapes, but also hops, prunes, and apples. The county manages to cling to its leisurely way of life--which is how the local nickname "Slow-noma" got started (despite the fact that the valley attracts nearly 8 million tourists annually)--and is really more about simple enjoyment than a jam-packed sightseeing itinerary. Napa may be better known, but as the crowds of visitors continue to clog the roads there, Sonoma's appeal as a vacation destination only grows.
