Welcome to My New Travel Series!
I’ll be sharing my favorite spots to hit while visiting Wine Country, or more specifically: Healdsburg, California (Sonoma County). This is a place my family has been coming to for years, mostly because our “feels like” family has a vineyard and winery out here, so I like to think I know a few of the best attractions here!
– this family favorite has some of the tastiest spicy dishes (or so I’ve heard from the entire family… I hate spicy lol), super fresh pizza, and you can play bacci ball outside while waiting for your food!
~my order~ always the burrata, for dessert: pistachio gelato or tiramisu-Healdsburg Bar & Grill
⁃ Go out for a chill dinner or lunch for some good ole American eats! I recommend sitting outside with friends or family and await the insanely delicious food (the burger buns taste like garlic bread… aka heaven).
~my order~ the pulled pork sandwich and a side of truffle fries
-boating on Lake Sonoma
⁃ If you’re feeling adventurous, a boat ride or tubing trip is definitely necessary. After discovering this lake many years ago, we have religiously gone back each summer… you will 100% fall in love with the views.
⁃ Be sure to stop at the Dry Creek general store to pick up some of the best sandwiches you’ve ever had before heading out!
-wine tasting at Comstock Wines Winery
⁃ Hey, maybe I’m biased but you’ve gotta go taste these wines… and tell Sandy and Bob I sent you if you do! Trust me, or my parents, the flavor of these wines will not disappoint. And, I’ve seen the BTS and the hard work and love that goes into each bottle is insane.
– In the small town of Healdsburg, I strongly recommend peaking into each local boutique if you get the chance!
