Santa Rosa and beyond: Three destinations by car

One of the great things about Santa Rosa is its proximity to nature, as well as to other charming towns. Here are three spots to discover by rental car.

Sonoma County & Napa Valley

Sonoma County and Napa Valley are the largest wine regions in the United States, and both are filled with lovely towns.

Take a drive through the rolling vineyards, stop for lunch in Healdsburg (known for its restaurants and tasting rooms), learn about wine at any of hundreds of vineyards, and take your time stopping in the boutiques and galleries in towns like Yountville.

Journey time: 10 minutes to one hour, depending on where you go

Distance: Most stops within a few miles

San Francisco

For a more cosmopolitan experience, drive across the Golden Gate Bridge into San Francisco.

Here, an array of museums, dining options, and other attractions await you. Visit the Fisherman’s Wharf and watch the sea lions from the pier, take in the views at Golden Gate Park, visit Chinatown and dine on dim sum, or head out on a tour to Alcatraz Island, the prison that once held Al Capone.

Journey time: Around 1.2 hours

Distance: Approximately 55 miles

Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve

If you’re hoping for some time outdoors, Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve is a short drive, and a quiet retreat.

Be humbled by the massive redwoods, which can be seen from an easy loop hiking trail. The Primeval Redwood Forest is home to trees over 1,000 years old. After walking through the Redwood Grove, picnic in the adjacent open grassland for a nice contrast. Parking and access to the park is free.

Journey time: Around 30 minutes

Distance: Approximately 23 miles
