Situated in the northern part of Sonoma County, Healdsburg seems to offer everything one may want while in Wine Country, including great wine, excellent restaurants, boutique shopping, and even a charming historic plaza in the heart of town.

When you’re ready to book your visit, here are nine of the best places to stay in downtown Healdsburg.
