Sonoma Listed as Top Worldwide Travel Destination by Forbes, Frommer's

From rolling hills to fructuous valleys lined with some of the most delicious wine-producing grapes in the world, there’s no doubt that Sonoma County is a world class destination. And it was just named twice as a top global travel site by both Forbes and Frommer’s.

Here’s what Forbes had to say:

Following a string of wildfires, this resilient Wine Country enclave is open for business. The area’s picturesque vineyards, delightful restaurants and gorgeous galleries offer all the elegance of Napa without the crowds. While wine tasting is certainly a highlight (don’t miss Copain Wines or The Donum Estate), Sonoma County also offers year-round entertainment: the Sonoma International Film Festival takes place March 25-29, while the Sonoma Speed Festival unfolds May 28-31. There are also charming spots, like chateau-style Hotel Les Mars in Healdsburg, and sumptuous new retreats (including MacArthur Place Hotel & Spa) to rest your head after the fun.

Frommer’s listed Sonoma as the Reader’s Choice for its Best Place to Go in 2020, calling it the “ideal setting for a classic wine country holiday.”

For those wanting a vacation, but afraid of international or air travel right now, look no further. There is beauty and intrigue in your own backyard.
