Life is like a glass of wine.
Located in California’s wine country and part of northern Sonoma County, Healdsburg is a quaint upscale town with a modest population of roughly 11,000 people. It’s the quiet part of Sonoma County, perfect for people who want to live away from the noise of bustling cities. Wineries are scattered across Healdsburg for those who love a sharp red or a whimsical white. The houses themselves have a country suburban vibe. Think of a pie made from scratch at your grandmother’s but in the form of a house, and there you have it! It’s warm and inviting, and it will definitely leave you wanting another slice.
If you’re in the mood for fancy cuisine, check out Bravas, a traditional yet elegant Spanish restaurant that serves large plates and offers a wide selection of drinks from wines to gin and tonics. Barndiva brings farm-to-table dining to a new level with its exquisite cuisine made from locally grown produce. If you want excellent food at a more affordable price, try Healdsburg Bar and Grill, a local favorite. If Italian food with a side of entertainment piques your interest, head over to Campo Fina. Make sure you try their woodfired pie. KINSmoke is the place to enjoy fine BBQ—and it’s super kid-friendly!
The stylish life doesn’t just stop with the household. What’s more upscale than jazz? A festival dedicated to the blues. The Healdsburg Jazz Festival is a week-long celebration of all things jazz: concerts, education, and workshops. Family events can be found all over town, but the Prune Packers are always a hit. Topnotch collegiate baseball players compete in friendly leagues in this local tradition held at Healdsburg Recreation Park. It’s like having the World Series in your own backyard! Every year on Memorial Day, Healdsburg hosts the Future Farmers Country Fair, which teaches children about the town and promotes overall family bonding.
