California is the most agriculturally diverse state in America, so it is not surprising at all that the small town of Healdsburg, located in Sonoma County, and one of the nation’s most agriculturally productive counties for over a century, should be a culinary tourist’s treat.
What to do here?
The city is centrally located to the more than 100 world-class wineries and tasting rooms in the Northern California wine areas of Alexander Valley, Chalk Hill, Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley, not to mention many restaurants and artisan food producers that support the local food movement.
Around the central downtown plaza you’ll find boutiques, galleries, bookstores and antiques stores, or you can go to the redwoods for hiking, biking or canoeing. Go camping, or stay in an intimate B&B.
