Charmingly rustic, the town of Guerneville (pop. 4,534) mixes towering Redwoods, cool river waters, laid-back attitudes and Sonoma Wine Country delights in a pleasing blend that makes it a popular destination. Johnson's Beach & Resort provides the main river access in downtown Guerneville, within walking distance of restaurants and shops. Visit the awe-inspiring, 805-acre Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve, two miles north of Guerneville's Main Street. Walk among the serene, majestic beauty of California coast redwoods, some of the world's tallest living things. It can be a transforming experience.
