Local Activities:

On the Coast (only 1 hour away):

  • Bodega Bay: a small and very quaint town on the coast. Its claim to fame is the school used for filming Hitchcock’s “The Birds”. Some of the best dining can be found at either Lucas Wharf Restaurant and Bar 707-875-3522 or The Tides Restaurant 707-875-3652.
  • Seal watching at Goat Rock (CA State Park): year-round; approximately 200 seals eat and sleep on a stretch of beach located at Goat Rock beach. You can’t get closer than 50 feet, but they are lovely to see. Great stretch of beach for walking and picnicking. Take River Road to the Ocean, take left fork toward Bodega Bay.
  • River Road: a fun way to get to the Ocean from here is to go down River Road, and stop and look at some of the interesting things in the many small towns dotting this road which leads to the Ocean: Guerneville, Monte RioDuncans Mills and Jenner.
