More About
Healdsburg, CA

About HealdsburgHealdsburg is one of those northern California towns that just radiates charm. For one thing it's a shopper’s delight, packed with trendy boutiques, art galleries and antique shops. The compact downtown area is perfect for strolling, dog walking, people-watching at an outdoor café or partaking of the libations at any number of coffee houses and wine bars. During the weekend, shady Healdsburg Plaza is usually the center of activity, and you're quite likely to come across an art show, free concert or antique sale.

Those in search of culinary excellence make the trek to experience such upscale restaurants as Dry Creek Kitchen and Spoonbar. Sample the vintages of the neighboring Dry Creek, Alexander and Russian River valleys at one of the tasting rooms bordering the plaza. Or get out and explore some of these renowned vineyards, many of which are open to visitors for tastings and tours. Access Westside Road, just off Healdsburg Avenue, and head west—the winding route is exceptionally scenic, passing rolling hills and gorgeous countryside.

The Russian River flows through town, providing invigorating recreation for canoeists and kayakers as well as an excuse to relax for the casual day-tripper. Healdsburg Veterans Memorial Beach , 13839 Healdsburg Ave., has picnic facilities as well as a man-made swimming beach along the river. Biking through the surrounding wine country is a perfect way to combine exercise and bucolic scenery.

The Raven Performing Arts Theater , 115 North St., presents everything from plays and musical and comedy acts to fashion shows. For schedule information phone (707) 433-6335.
