Road Trip  | Travelogue  |  Directory

Trip 7 is the perfect getaway for any season... a world away from city pace. Scenic and alluring diversions await around every bend in the road.

Loop through hidden country back roads and small resort towns nestled amid majestic redwoods as you drive along the meandering Russian River to the Pacific Ocean. Along your journey experience world class wines, gourmet farm-fresh cuisine, romantic elegant inns... and cozy forest, ocean, and riverside lodgings.

For wine tasting, from Hwy 101 in Santa Rosa, take Hwy 12 west to Sebastopol and head north on Hwy 116 to River Road via Martinelli Rd.

For scenery, shopping, dining and lodging... don't miss the inland byways and picturesque towns of Occidental and Graton. Or just head for the coast, about an hour's drive on River Rd. from Hwy. 101.
