Northern California's Gay Resort Getaway


If you live in San Francisco or Northern California at some point you will come to the Russian River for a summer weekend. The town of Guerneville has been a gay resort area since the early 1970s and features a number of gay hotels/resorts and campgrounds as well as a collection of small but popular bars. Similar to many other gay escapes, by day you'll find the boys lounging around the pool (Fife's and Russian River Resort are most popular) and by night they hit the dance floors and bars. The Russian River is nestled in old growth redwoods so be sure to swim, float or paddle your way on the river between sipping those cocktails.
