Getting Here and Around

To get to Healdsburg from San Francisco, cross the Golden Gate Bridge and continue north on U.S. 101. About 65 miles from San Francisco, take the Central Healdsburg exit and follow Healdsburg Avenue a few blocks north to the town's central plaza. Many hotels and restaurants are on or around the scenic town square. From Santa Rosa, the drive along U.S. 101 takes about 15 minutes in light traffic. Wineries bearing Healdsburg addresses can be as far apart as 20 miles, so unless you plan to sample wines only at the many in-town tasting rooms, you'll need a car. Both Dry Creek Valley AVA and Russian River Valley AVA are west of U.S. 101; most of the Alexander Valley AVA is east of the freeway.
