Taste, Explore and Dine in Charming Healdsburg Plaza

In the town of Healdsburg, wine country is meant to inspire and enjoy. Stop and revel in the simple pleasures that are the Healdsburg Plaza. During the summer, the restored gazebo bubbles with free music from zydeco to classic, jazz to blues. Outdoor markets brim with fresh local foods and artisan delights. Enjoy antiquing? Two blocks from the plaza you can scope out treasures to your heart’s content.

Healdsburg, in the heart of Northern Sonoma wine country, is surrounded by lush valleys, sheltering trees, century-old olive orchards and vineyards. Rambling along the back roads, there are more than 200 wineries, most of them family-owned. It’s easy to understand why settlers came here and stayed.

The Healdsburg plaza is about antique shops, unusual boutiques, art fairs, tasting rooms, and fabulous foods ranging from BBQ to upscale fare. Friendly and distinctive, the plaza is about sitting in an outdoor cafe and feeling as if you might be in a small European town. The marriage of history and a serene present, that’s the Healdsburg Plaza.
