Healdsburg Vacation Rentals: Day Trips

Healdsburg is in the heart of three world class wine growing regions. One of the Healdsburg vacation rentals makes a great base camp from which to explore. Our wineries in the Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley, and Russian River Valley offer wine tasting and tours in idyllic vineyard settings. The town itself is centered around the Healdsburg Plaza. The Plaza is a center park that was established in the mid 1800s. It features a central fountain, walkways, benches and a stage for summer concerts. The Plaza hosts frequent events, music and Farmer's Markets. Around the Plaza, there are an eclectic mix of stores, art galleries and tasting rooms. Healdsburg is also home to many world class restaurants.

The town of Healdsburg is surrounded by beautiful vineyards replete with country roads offering rich opportunities for wine tasting, hiking and biking. Many wineries are open to the public for tasting. Wine tours are also available that supply an experienced guide as your companion and designated driver. Bike rentals are available in town as well as guided rides through the Wine Country. The Russian River is known for fishing, canoeing and kayaking. Memorial Beach is a seasonal beach on the Russian River in Healdsburg that offers swimming and a large picnic and recreation area with a sandy beach. Across the street, there is a kayak rental business that drops visitors off up river for full and half day river trips. The Russian River is home to bass and trout. In the fall, the steelhead and salmon run and, in the summer, shad.

Close by Lake Sonoma is the largest lake in Sonoma County. It offers a family recreation area with swimming and boating areas as well as lots of hiking trails. Boat rentals are available for fishing or water sports. There is a Fish Hatchery that offers seasonal tours. Armstrong Woods is a large State Park with many hiking and horse trails surrounded by Redwood trees that are over 1000 years old.

Day trips to San Francisco, Napa Valley, the coast and the California Redwoods are all within easy access on from your Healdsburg vacation rental. The coast offers historic Fort Ross as well as several charming small towns and many public beaches. Avid fishermen can fish Lake Sonoma and ocean fishing boats leave from Bodega Bay and Fort Bragg. An hour north, the Skunk Train runs through the Redwoods towards Fort Bragg and takes the traveler through some of the most beautiful scenery in the north coast. The world famous Napa Valley wine region is an easy country drive through the Alexander and Knights Valleys. Many wineries are open for public tasting. In addition, the Wine Train runs a luxury rail through the Napa Valley serving fine food and wine.

All this and so much more, our Healdsburg vacation rentals are comfortable, convenient and perfect for the end of each day of exploration.
