A Foodie Tour of Healdsburg, CA
This Sonoma, California destination is a health-conscious wine and organic food lover’s ideal vacation spot.
Boutique Luxury Eco-Hotels
Healdsburg has two sister boutique hotels — Hotel Healdsburg and H2 Hotel — that are right in the middle of town. They’re both eco-friendly, LEED certified hotels with their own organic farm-to-table restaurants (Dry Creek Kitchen, PizZando and Spoonbar). The hotels were both constructed using recycled material and salvaged lumber. The hotel’s green roof promotes biodiversity and filters airborne pollutants from rainwater, protecting water quality for threatened Steelhead Trout in Foss Creek.
There are 19 tasting rooms within a few minutes via bicycle
Make sure to check out the spa at Hotel Healdsburg. They use mostly natural locally-made products, and their treatments are focused on ‘igniting the body’s own healing abilities’. I was also stoked to find out that they have a two great hot tubs — one indoor, one outdoor — plus a fabulous 60-foot swimming pool (both heated by the solar panels on the roof of the hotel, naturally!) They also have a spacious couples treatment room featuring a private soaking tub (but I prefer the outdoor hot tub), and massage tables with heated padding.
Try the Lavender Peppermint Restorative Massage and the From the Farm Stress Relieving Facial.
