All about Healdsburg
When to visit
Healdsburg’s mild Mediterranean climate makes it a genuine year-round destination. The weather is at its finest, however, in late spring and early fall, when it’s sunny, warm, and temperate. Summers are hot and swell with wine tasting groups, but also offer visitors a chance to see the Healdsburg Art Festival and seasonal Sunday farmers markets—a shining example of the region’s farm-to-table foodie movement.
Healdsburg is built for walking, with a small central square surrounded by side streets brimming with restaurants, art galleries, and boutique shops. Public transportation options are limited, but bus line No. 67, also called the Healdsburg Shuttle, takes riders around town for free. Travelers wanting to explore Sonoma County are best served by driving, while those staying local should take advantage of the local bike share—Healdsburg’s roads are leafy and flat, and many include bike lanes.
Locals and tourists flock to Healdsburg for dips in the Russian River, especially in summer. Beach access, however, is nearly impossible for drivers coming from town, as there is nowhere to legally park along South Fitch Mountain Road. If you’re driving, head to Del Rio Woods Regional Park, where there’s a small parking lot—arrive early, pay a small parking fee, and take about a dozen steps down to the riverbank.
