You are here

This small town is brimming with ways to disconnect from life’s hustle and reconnect with yourself and your fellow travelers.

Shop for artisan-made souvenirs and crystals in the locally owned spots that line the two-block downtown or settle into a wine tasting.

Checkout the Occidental Center for the Arts where classes and workshops run the gamut from writing and watercolor to figure drawing and bluegrass fiddling. The center also hosts concerts featuring local musicians and singers and its annual chamber music series.

Immerse yourself in natural beauty as you stroll the three-acre grounds of Western Hills Garden. This Sonoma County gem is brimming with a kaleidoscope of blooms, some of which are very rare. (Visits are by appointment only, so book ahead.)

Adventure-lovers and nature-lovers alike will enjoy canopy cruising with the guides of Sonoma Zipline Adventures. You will get a breathtaking bird's-eye view and you'll even fly into an old-growth redwood forest where trees are more than 700 years old. The guided tours feature seven zip lines, two sky bridges, a majestic spiral staircase, rappelling, and the unparalleled beauty of California's coastal redwoods.

When you need to stop for food, there are several wonderful places to enjoy a memorable meal in town.
