Jenner , or "Jenner-by-the-Sea," is a sleepy little seaside town on the northern California coast, near the town of Bodega Bay. Getting to Jenner is half the fun, and is not a place you "rush" to - that is, if you arrive on Highway 1, which takes you on many twists and turns as it winds right along the ocean. For those looking for a quicker way to reach Jenner, the fastest route from San Francisco is via Highway 101 across the Golden Gate Bridge through Santa Rosa to the River Road West. Situated on the Sonoma Coast at the mouth of the Russian River, Jenner is a place to rest and relax and lose yourself in the spectacular natural environment. There are not a lot of crowds or traffic in Jenner, nor is there much in the way of nightlife. Activities include walks on the beach looking for driftwood and exploring tide pools. Whale watching is available January through April, and seal watching is available any time of the year. The Russian River flows between Goat Rock Beach and Jenner Beach into the Pacific Ocean, and the two beaches together are home to a colony of more than 300 California Harbor Seals. The river estuary at Jenner also provides some of the best bird watching opportunities along the west coast. Other attractions include visiting the Sonoma Wine Country, just 30 to 90 minutes away. Outdoor activities near Jenner include swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking the Russian River, and also antiquing, hot air ballooning, abalone diving and golf. A little further north from Jenner on Highway 1 is historic Fort Ross, a Russian outpost established in 1812, a fascinating site for anyone interested in history.

Jenner Weather & Climate

The Northern California coast region, including the Russian River area, has a climate of mild days and cool nights - even in summertime. Right along the coast, low clouds and fog that usually burns off by early afternoon, is common. The further inland you go away from the ocean, the sunnier it is. There is little or no rain May through September. The rainy season begins in late October or November, with January and February being the wettest months. Flooding is a problem in winter when rains are heavy within a short period of time, mostly due to the many creeks and rivers in the area. Strong winds are usually present right along the coastline, but lessen as you travel inland. Fall is generally the sunniest season along the northern California coast.
