You can come to Tapas at the town nearest you. Or you can take a drive on a summer day to another town well worth visiting: beautiful Jenner where the River meets the sea; Graton with its award-winning restaurants; Cloverdale with its new, fine theater; or downtown Guerneville, the heart of the Lower River.
