In these pandemic times, day trips and staycations are fast becoming popular ways to spend a summer holiday as people look to stay closer to home while also practicing social distancing.
A local zipline company is now taking the close-to-home vacation to new heights. Starting next month, Alliance Redwoods Sonoma Canopy Tours will invite guests to stay above the ground in five yurt-like treehouses in Occidental. The company, which has offered zip line experiences among the redwoods for a decade, had been planning the opening of their Sonoma Treehouses aerial village long before the pandemic. Now, policies are put in place to ensure guests can safely zip off the grid and into a queen bed.
