RUSSIAN RIVER, CA
Located along the gorgeous Russian River Valley, communities include Forestville, Guerneville, Monte Rio, and Villa Grande real estate has long served as an escape from the fast-paced urban world. Once a center for the Redwood logging industry, the area has reinvented itself over the years and now serves as a resort town for visitors looking to explore the Russian River. Like the rest of the county, the wine industry is vital to the town, which is home to the Korbel Winery. With two stop lights, two bookstores and a library, Guerneville places an emphasis on the continual learning of its residents.
