Beaches & Parks
The County has expanded access to some of the region’s best beaches, parks and recreational areas. In some cases, facilities are limited and public picnic areas are closed. But the fresh, open air, sunshine, sea and sand are available for the taking. A few of our favorite, recently-reopened spots (within an hour of the hotel) are below.
With more than 55 miles of shoreline, Sonoma County’s coast is rugged, dramatic, scenic and diverse. You’ll find long sandy beaches, secluded coves, rocky crags, natural stone arches and sheer cliffs that meet the edge of the sea. The perfect setting for hiking, camping, fishing, building driftwood castles, studying tide pools, reading, napping, or just enjoying the crisp air and brilliant sunshine. All Sonoma Coast and Russian River beaches are now open!
Sonoma County is blessed with a seemingly infinite number of gorgeous parks, many of which are a short drive from MacArthur Place. A few of our favorite nearby parks where you can enjoy hundreds of acres of oak woodland, rolling landscape, sweeping vistas, hidden picnic spots and so much more:
