About Healdsburg

In the heart of the Sonoma wine region, Healdsburg has been blessed with fertile soil, and since the rise of the farmer’s market this little town has become a bit of a mecca for foodies and wine lovers. And now, as well as the regular markets, Healdsburg also has numerous restaurants, cafes and wine tasting rooms. The best places to stay in Healdsburg tend to be grown-up, boutique-y properties where you can expect a quiet, understated pampering. Healdsburg’s gentrification is recent, so the atmosphere and architecture is wonderfully unspoiled.

What Not To Miss

  • Most visitors to Healdsburg are here to eat, drink and relax, so expect to find plenty of open cellar doors and be prepared to book your restaurant table in advance. Especially on a weekend lunch - it is little over an hours drive from San Francisco.
  • If you want to tour the wineries you might want to consider doing it by bike - many of them can be found on two roads, Dry Creek Road or Westside Road and the countryside it pretty flat.
  • There’s also a beautiful river nearby if you fancy a spot of canoeing or kayaking and plenty of beautiful walking trails.
  • Healdsburg plaza is a great place to explore the variety of shops and restaurants available or even just to enjoy a coffee and people-watch.

Some of the best places to stay in Healdsburg can be found in the town itself around the sun-dappled town plaza, while some are out amongst the wineries.
