Things to Do
The beauty of Healdsburg is unsurpassed - centered in the Northern California wine country, visitors often compare the area to Tuscany. Browse our restaurants or go shopping, antiquing, wine tasting or enjoy a cooking class around the Healdsburg Plaza. Take a walking tour of our historic homes, get a soothing massage at one of our spas, or linger in our museums and wine library. Meander through the Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley along our Farm Trails and Art Trails to the farms, wineries, studios and galleries that capture the area's essence in food, wine and art.
Outdoor recreation and fun activities abound: Travel along the back roads for picnics under redwood trees in one of our many parks. Road cycling is enjoyed year-round. Experience hot air balloon rides through the vineyards and rolling hillsides. Our golf courses are among the best in the SF Bay Area.
The Russian River runs through Healdsburg, and visitors enjoy beaches, swimming, canoeing and kayaking, all the way to the Pacific Coast. Ride or drive the Coast to enjoy sightseeing, walking on beaches, whale watching, bird watching, or rock climbing! Enjoy a scenic driving tour to San Francisco, the Napa Valley, Mendocino, Redwood Empire and the North Coast, all within a day's reach.
