"A Northern California River Retreat" Top 5 Page for this destination Guerneville by jessicadf

Guerneville Travel Guide: 45 reviews and 92 photos

Just two hours North of San Francisco

And you can be in the relaxed town of Guerneville. Paddle in a kayak or a canoe. Swim. Sun bathe. Attend a music festival. Snooze. It's all good.

This is generally a Summertime retreat for city dwellers, looking to relax on the Russian River.

In the winter the river can get high and have massive floods... not exactly where you want to be during major storms.

    Hey Jessica, I hope you you were not feeding the ducks in Guerneville salted sunflower seeds... those can be hard on there digestive systems. We all know duck farts can be deadly !! ;)
