Sonoma County Makes Time Magazine List of Best Places to Travel

Time Magazine’s online edition listed Sonoma County as the place to be in the month of March in its recent article A Month-by-Month Guide to the Best Places to Travel in 2017.

January was “Road-trip through the Yucatán,” February was “Go skiing in Mont-Tremblant, Quebec,” and then came “Sip and stroll in Sonoma, Calif.” The article suggested, “stop at the Dry Creek General Store, a local fixture in Healdsburg since 1881, for house-made pesto and fresh mozzarella panini ($10).” It also said that while Napa Valley may “get more buzz,” Sonoma is “just as beautiful—and hotels can be about 40% cheaper.” This exciting validation of our local area’s appeal comes as Santa Rosa has already been ranked “one of the best value towns in the U.S.” by Sunset Magazine, and “one of the best places to live in the U.S.” by U.S. News.
