Go Boho on the Bohemian Highway

It’s just 10 miles long, but oh, what a sweet 10 miles. The Bohemian Highway, named for the artists and other alternative-lifestyle folks who settled the area after the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (and kept coming, especially in the 1960s), is a scenic and pastoral two-lane byway anchored by artist-filled communities, organic farms and wineries, one-of-a-kind shops, innovative restaurants and lots of scenic food for the soul.

The charming Creekside Inn & Resort in Guerneville, at the north end of the drive, is on our Russian River A-list. If multiple rooms and a kitchen are among your requirements, check out the dozens of dog–friendly rentals available through Russian River Getawaysmore »

Ever skipped an otherwise great outing because your dog couldn’t come along? We all have—and sometimes, it’s because we just didn’t know our options. Here’s one that should be on every DogTrekker’s bucket list: floating with your pup on the Russian River in an inflatable canoe specifically designed to accommodate canines.

Russian River Adventures outfits this adventure for hundreds of DogTrekkers each summer using super-stable SOAR canoes that let all of you travel comfortably on an 8.5-mile stretch of the Russian River out of Healdsburg in Sonoma County. more »

The Glamping Route

“Glamping,” a hybrid word referring to rustic-chic, outdoor-oriented lodging that doesn’t involve pitching your own tent, is a concept that’s been exploding for more than a decade, with new properties opening every season in Northern California. A new player on the scene, Inn Town Campground, just outside the Gold Country town of Nevada City, does it right with a colony of safari-style tents outfitted with electricity, comfy beds, fresh linens, artsy accessories and outdoor seating. more »

There’s something about fresh ocean air that makes a day at the coast restorative as well as memorable. Every good bird deserves watching at Bodega Bay, an hour and a half north of San Francisco. Photo: Steve Shupe. more »

Sounds Like Sonoma Wine Country

Rural but sophisticated? Away from it all but not far from home? Sounds like Sonoma County, where cabin and cottage retreats are as much a part of the landscape as towering redwoods and vineyard-covered hills. more »

Ruffin' It In Style

When it comes time to spend the night, Sonoma County has more options than a Dalmatian has spots. Autumn offers great rates at dog-friendly properties in hip and happening Healdsburg. The Best Western Plus Dry Creek Inn, where newly renovated, dog-friendly rooms  go for under $100 a night midweek, is a DogTrekker favorite. The stylish H2hotel just off the downtown plaza serves up filtered water along with pats for its canine guests. more »

Inflatable Fun

Float the Russian River with your dog The stretch of Russian River between Geyserville and Guerneville and can be a floating party in summertime, but after Labor Day the crowds disappear like magic and a mellow atmosphere rules. Russian River Adventures' inflatable, custom-made SOAR canoes are stable as a rock, easy to maneuver and as much fun for your dog as for you. A standard float trip starts with a safety briefing at company headquarters in Healdsburg (coffee served while you wait) followed by launching across the road at Healdsburg Memorial Beach. A shuttle bus meets paddlers at the take-out point 8.5 miles down river. In between is (mostly) calm water and plenty of scenery to enjoy. “We offer one of the most fun days a dog and his owner can have,” says owner Larry Laba. Need a dog-friendly place to stay? Russian River Getaways maintains an inventory of dog-friendly vacation homes for rent in the Russian River region and elsewhere in Sonoma County.   more »
