Sonoma County, California

“Sonoma’s wines come to mind when we think of the area about 30 miles north of San Francisco. There are more than 250 wineries, and lots more to do after touring and tasting. July’s weather, with temperatures reaching into the 80s, is ideal for being outdoors swimming at a Pacific coast beachkayaking along the Russian River, or camping among the redwoods. If you prefer a hotel, consider MacArthur Place, with a luxe spa, garden setting, and all-day dining at Layla. The newly-renovated Flamingo Resort, on 10 acres in Santa Rosa, features a year-round heated pool with poolside dining. Hotel Healdsburg is set on the edge of the historic town plaza, with dining in the popular Dry Creek Kitchen. Nearby, the h2hotel and Harmon Guest House offer boutique-style amenities. The new Montage Healdsburg is located on 258 acres, offering 130 bungalow-style rooms and 40 Montage Residences nestled among oak trees and vine-covered hills. Visitors can also choose a vacation home, perfect for group travel, through AvantStay, with properties featuring up to five bedrooms, pools, and expansive outdoor spaces.” – Patricia Doherty, Travel + Leisure
