Along the Russian River, surrounded by forests, Guerneville is a picturesque little town less than thirty minutes from Sebastopol. Cute little shops and small-town feel will have you itching to spend time here before heading out towards the coast. Why not make a day out of it? Here’s your guide to a lovely day in Guerneville.
But First, Coffee
Grab a cup of coffee at Higher Ground Organic Espresso. This eclectic little coffee shop has interesting coffee drinks like a buttered rum latte as well as classic favorites. Relax and flip through some books or browse the art on the walls while you get your caffeine fix.
Take a Hike
Guerneville is home to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Preserve. With multiple trails, you can choose between a rigorous hike or a leisurely stroll through the ancient redwoods. Whatever your style, take some time to get out and appreciate the incredible landscape.
Lunch at a Taco Truck
All that hiking will make you hungry. Luckily, you don’t need to go out to a fancy restaurant to eat well. Eat like the locals and hit up the Guerneville Taco Truck, conveniently located in the Safeway parking lot. With great prices and amazing authentic Mexican food, your taste buds (and your wallet) will thank you.
