A few weeks ago, boys had Veteran’s Day off from school. It was on the middle of the week and we had no plans other than veggie at home. We decided to drive up to Guerneville up in Sonoma County for a little day trip, outing by Russian River. It turned out to be the most relaxing enjoyable family time we had. Here is a quick recap and few recommendations. It’s such a cute quaint town to visit for a day trip or on a weekend. We are excited about going back in Spring/Summer time!
Big Bottom Market – A small market/café with yummy salad and sandwiches to pack to go on a picnic by the river. Walking distance to Johnson’s Beach. (Main St.)
Boon Eat & Drink Café – A small Californian bistro with fresh seasonal ingredients. Good for brunch and early dinner! (Main St.)
Guerneville Bank Club – Old bank turned into ice cream parlor and pie shop. Get a scoop on little history in the gallery, a photo zone in the vault, a scoop of handmade ice cream and pie.
Commerce Fine Goods – Inside Guerneville Bank Club, find small fine goods store with handmade items from local artisans. A must visit when in Guerneville.
Johnson’s Beach by Russian River – It’s not the sandy beach you’re thinking of. It’s a quiet river side beach where you can skip rocks, feed the ducks and have a nice afternoon picnic.
Armstrong Redwood National Forest – Nice redwood hiking trails and picnic area. Only 5 min drive away from Main St.
