What to Do in (and Around!)

Healdsburg this Summer


If you’re looking to experience J Vineyards and Winery like a local, why not complement your visit with some fun summertime activities in and around the beautiful Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast? The area is teeming with local hotspots and must-see destinations that will give you a taste of what it’s like to live here.

One of the most popular summer activities in Sonoma County is a visit to Armstrong Redwoods State Natural Reserve in Guerneville. This state park is home to some of the tallest and most majestic redwood trees in the world. Take a leisurely stroll along the pathways and marvel at these towering giants, some of which are over 1,000 years old. Afterward, head to the nearby town of Guerneville for some local shopping and dining.

Another charming town to explore is Duncans Mills, which is home to a variety of shops, cafés and even a record store. With a distinctly local feel, Duncans Mills is conveniently situated between Guerneville and the Sonoma Coast along the Russian River.

If you’re in the mood for some beach time, head to the Sonoma Coast for a day of exploring. Highlights include Goat Rock Beach, Shell Beach and the Coastal Trail, which offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean. Make sure to stop by Bodega Bay for some local seafood while you’re nearby.
