Healdsburg …where to start.
hours north of San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge, the town
of Healdsburg has become a crown jewel of California's Wine
Country. Small, friendly and sophisticated, it has a unique
mix of European flair and small-town Americana.
Visitors are awed by giant redwoods downtown and the lazy
Russian River embracing historic neighborhoods. Downtown
shops, galleries, outdoor eateries and the Plaza – which is
the town’s heart – make for great people-watching and
fabulous wineries of the Dry Creek, Alexander, and Russian
River Valleys – California's prime grape-growing regions –
are only a few minutes away by car or bicycle. A favorite
daytrip is tasting wines and enjoying a picnic overlooking
the beautiful, serene vineyards surrounding Healdsburg. It's
no wonder Sonoma County is called the Tuscany of California!
Healdsburg area is also well known for world-class
restaurants, great bicycling and hot-air ballooning, plus
swimming, kayaking, canoeing and fishing at the Russian
River and Lake Sonoma.
