Healdsburg has long been a sleepy little country town just enough off the beaten path to make for a remarkably relaxing getaway. While Napa’s natural glamour dazzled out-of-towners, locals in the know would slip away for quiet weekends a little farther north.

Today, Healdsburg still retains its small-town vibe and rustic charm, but the rest of the world is waking up to all it has to offer. That includes three-Michelin-starred dining plus enough shops, galleries and tasting rooms to keep you occupied for a longer stay. As to where to stay, we highly recommend the H2 HOTEL. As the undulating “green roof” suggests, this eco-chic hotel holds the gold standard in sustainability certifications, which should help you sleep even better at night! And you’re going to need your rest – Aside from miles of hiking trails (plus shopping and gallery hopping), some of our favorite wineries have tasting rooms right downtown. Start your day on the right foot with a saunter across the historic Healdsburg Plaza, established in the 1850’s by Harmon Heald himself.
