Although most visitors to the Russian River Valley stay in Healdsburg, there's a lot to be said for peaceful Guerneville, a popular destination for gay and lesbian travelers who stay in the rustic resorts and sunbathe on the bank of the river. The town's most famous winery is Korbel Champagne Cellars, established here nearly a century and a half ago. Even older are the stands of redwoods that except on the coldest of winter days make Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve such a perfect respite from wine tasting.
