The Russian River is the West Coast's favorite LGBT playground. This string of offbeat river villages attracts thousands of LGBT visitors every year for a wide range of activities and fun.
Whether visiting for a weekend, a week or longer, you won't find any other getaway that matches the Russian River's unique and spectacular natural beauty, combined with friendly businesses and residents who genuinely appreciate diversity.
Enjoy new experiences every time you visit. Gorgeous dry, sunny days dominate May - September, perfect for sunning by a pool with your friends or canoeing down the River. You can go biking, hiking and wine-tasting during the day, and every evening there is something happening at the bars & clubs.
Or you can decide to nothing at all and relax after dinner to the sound of the wind in the redwoods.
