From hiking among the mighty redwood trees to canoeing on the Russian River, or just strolling on one of the many beaches along the Pacific, you’ll find many activities to enjoy throughout the county. Also ballooning, automobile racing at the Infineon Raceway (including a racing school for lay people) to Luther Burbank gardens and wildlife animal preserves provide additional entertainment. If you enjoy horseback riding spectacular vistas can be enjoyed from trails through the dunes and beaches as well as the coastal parks and private ranches. Trailer your own horse or rent one to begin your exploration.
If you’d rather enjoy “truckin the back roads”, you can travel the Coast Hwy.1 for panoramic views, head into the hills for some solitude, or to the Pacific Ocean to see some crashing waves. If you enjoy history, explore the small towns of “yester-year” where the local towns have preserved their buildings, culture and history. If you enjoy bicycling, pack a picnic basket and take some of the back roads into the inland scenic hills or along the coast and enjoy the vistas of the crashing surf or the green/golden hillsides with colorful wildflowers and dappled tree-filtered sunlight.
