Downtown Forestville

Forestville is a city in Sonoma County, Northern California. Set in the heart of "wine country", it is a small town with one major street running through it and no stoplights.

Get in[edit]

The largest nearby airports are San Francisco International Airport (SFO IATA) and Oakland (OAK IATA). Horizon air recently resumed commercial airtravel from the Charles Shultz airport (STS IATA) in Santa Rosa, with daily flights to Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland and Las Vegas. Driving there, most people use Highway 116.

Get around[edit]

Driving around Forestville is the easiest mode of transit. Traffic is rarely busy, and parking is abundant. A car will allow you to explore the mostly rural, but beautiful areas. One should take care along Pocket Canyon, and Maribel Rd though, as logging trucks are known for speeding around the very tight turns.

Although there are no designated bike lanes in the town, it remains one of the most popular modes of transit. As always, be aware of transit on the busier routes, and do not leave your bicycle attended outside unless locked up.

Walking is a great way to see the small town, visit the coffee house, and few local shops. Downtown can be walked from one end to the other in about fifteen minutes.





  • Berry's Market (just before the Hacienda Bridge on River Road). Makes good sandwiches for picnics on the beach.
  • Mosaic Restaurant & Wine Lounge, 6675 Front St, +1 707 887-7503. Small, intimate and very romantic, but also the best food I've had in years. Try Chef/Owner Tai Olesky's Tasting Menu; you won't be disappointed, just full!


  • The Forestville Club. The only bar in town and has live music on the weekends.
