Destination Wedding List of Restaurants & Fun Things To Do

Create a LIST of fun things to do when hosting a wedding at a popular destination.

We see more and more couples and their families and friends plan a destination wine country wedding. The following areas are enjoyable, filled with amazing venues for weddings, wine tasting and exploring the wine regions in Sonoma County and Napa County. They offer great hotels and resorts, excellent restaurants and  multiple things to do while visiting -- along with award winning wines.  The wedding venues are amazing, ranging from barns, Victorians, gardens, inspiring beach settings and mountain tops. The wine country of California exists in most of the counties and multiple regions throughout the USA. Couples often prepare a list of enjoyable things to do for their guests, lodging and great area restaurants.

Please add your favorites to the blog for the Sonoma wine country region. Enjoy our list for your day trip, romantic get-away or honeymooning in the area.

Recently Healdsburg, California was named as one of the best places to live.  Needless to say, this small city is a happening place in the heart of the Sonoma wine country that was recently named #2 in favorite wedding destinations and one of the top 10 honeymoon areas of the USA. The wineries are in every direction, tucked into hillsides and valleys.

In northern Sonoma County, the lovely town of Healdsburg is also a favorite wedding destination with a variety of locations for inspiring weddings. The Villa Chanticleer is a historic park setting with well kept inside venues and very beautiful in April and May with the wisteria, and gazebo garden in bloom through fall.

We enjoyed a Healdsburg walking tour with Lori Moore.

Near Healdsburg Square, you will find excellent dining is available for lunch and dinner at Taverena Sofhia. A great idea for Wedding Showers, Rehearsal dinners and relaxed dining with their Greek and Mediterranean-style dishes and fine wine list.
Madrona Manor by Dennis Urbiztondo
Looking for a magnificent Victorian for your wedding, fine dining, or romantic stay, you find it all with the
Madrona Manor.  We found the Francis Ford Coppola's swim resort a unique experience and their restaurant and museum most enjoyable.  And you will not want to miss the exciting Greek Food menu for lunch and dinner at Sofia's Taverina in Healdsburg.

You will find an Alexander Valley casino, excellent gardens at Ferre Carrano, variety of gold medal wineries and some of the best shopping and top chefs in the world at local restaurants in Sonoma County.

I love Napa Wine Country.
