Healdsburg, CA

I recently visited Healdsburg, CA and had the best time! Nestled along the Russian River in the heart of Sonoma Wine Country, Healdsburg combines small-town charm, with an eclectic mix centered around a charming town plaza lined with shops, restaurants, tasting rooms, galleries, and bars.

While in Healdsburg, I stayed at the Cottages at Healdsburg and Hotel Trio. The Cottages at Healdsburg are located right in town, steps from all that wonderful Healdsburg has to offer. Hotel Trio, named after Healdsburg’s three acclaimed wine regions, offers 122-all suite accommodations in Sonoma County.

Enjoyed the Jazz Festival seeing Bill Frisell Trio featuring Thomas Morgan & Rudy Royston, Camille Thurman with Darrell Green Quartet at Bacchus Landing. Had a Dessert & Sparkling Show at Hotel Healdsburg for two and saw Carlitos Medrano and Sabor de mi Cuba Concert in the Healdsburg Plaza

Getting Here:

I flew into SFO and rented a car. Healdsburg is about a 1 hour and 45 min drive from the time I got into our car. You can also fly into Santa Rosa which is about a 15 min drive to Healdsburg.

I loved my time in Healdsburg and cannot wait to return!
