The Sonoma Coast

Nothing is quite like the wild character of Sonoma County’s pristine coastline. From dramatic rock outcroppings to spectacular beaches, cliffside hiking trails and the famed Russian River, West Sonoma County offers an unparalleled diversity of inspiring vistas.

The fishing village of Bodega Bay is a quintessential seaside small town, quite a rarity these days. A few miles inland, experience the breathtaking beauty of the Bohemian Highway, one of the most scenic drives in California. This special 10 mile roadway winds through towering forests, gorgeous pastures, rocky ravines, and three charming townships forgotten by time: Freestone, Occidental and Monte Rio. Buffered from the extremes of the marine fog and inland heat, this corridor is a gem of benign climate and was one of the very first areas to be settled in the entire region. Today, a Mecca for artists, back-to-the-landers and nature lovers, this special region has attracted a soulful community with a milieu all its own. Find organic farms and wineries, specialty nurseries, and impressively innovative shops and restaurants. It’s also a gateway to superb hiking, biking and paddling.
