Santa Rosa — 29 nights

Located less than an hour's drive north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa serves as a convenient hub for travelers on their way to the world-famous Napa Valley wine country.
Kids will enjoy Safari West and Children's Museum of Sonoma County. Change things up with these side-trips from Santa Rosa: Muir Woods National Monument (in Mill Valley), Stinson Beach (in Stinson Beach) and Elephant Statues (in Sausalito). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Charles M. Schulz Museum, immerse yourself in nature at Annadel State Park, stroll around Spring Lake Park, and admire the verdant scenery at Bennett Valley.

For traveler tips, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Santa Rosa online driving holiday planner.

Healdsburg to Santa Rosa is an approximately half hour car ride. You can also take a bus. In July, daily temperatures in Santa Rosa can reach 34°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sat) so you can drive back home.

Sonoma County travel guide

Less than an hour from San Francisco, Sonoma County bills itself as the "Number 1 Wine Destination in the U.S." for good reason. Though not as famous as the neighboring Napa Valley, Sonoma County features a rolling landscape dotted with over 250 wineries. The county ranks among the country's most agriculturally productive regions. It turns out not only some of America's finest grapes, but also hops, prunes, and apples. The county manages to cling to its leisurely way of life--which is how the local nickname "Slow-noma" got started (despite the fact that the valley attracts nearly 8 million tourists annually)--and is really more about simple enjoyment than a jam-packed sightseeing itinerary. Napa may be better known, but as the crowds of visitors continue to clog the roads there, Sonoma's appeal as a vacation destination only grows.
