Along the banks of Sonoma County's Russian River in the Russian River Valley lies the hamlet of Monte Rio. Monte Rio is located seventy-five miles north of San Francisco and twenty-one miles north-east of Santa Rosa. Tourists flocked by train starting in the 1870s to this quaint little community, then came by the thousands in the 1930s and ’40s to hear Big Bands play in the town's outdoor pavilions. Today, a historic 1950s-style neon sign arches overhead, proclaiming "Welcome to Monte Rio Vacation Wonderland."
Located on the north end of the ten-mile scenic stretch known as theBohemian Highway, Monte Rio spreads out on both sides of famous Russian River. It's home to the Monte Rio Amphitheater, an outdoor showcase for concerts, theater under the stars, and other events.
The area offers a variety of restaurants, while lodging options vary from quaint cottages on the river to luxury bed and breakfast inns, and historic small hotels. The Village Inn & Restaurant, built in 1906 as a private home, served as the site of several scenes in the Hollywood filmHoliday Inn, starring Bing Crosby and Fred Astaire. TheHighland Dell Hotel, also built in 1906, hosts the local OktoberFest.
