Yes, we have gorgeous wineries and tasting rooms, fine restaurants, shopping and scenic recreation areas. Healdsburg also offers live music, performances, entertainment and art. Camellia Inn is in walking distance to these following great activities and events.
Mark your calendars:

The Healdsburg Museum’s current exhibit is “If the Plaza Could Speak.” Come see milestones and memories in the life of our beloved Healdsburg Plaza, from its pioneer inception in 1857 to the present.

Finally – we end with food and wine, of course. Come to the End of Summer BBQ at Hart's Desire Wines, September 28th at noon, 53 Front Street.
Here is an easy recipe – good for chilly fall mornings and for a crowd (recipe can be halved).
Artichoke Cheese Baked Omelet
2 cups hot or mild salsa
3 large cans artichoke hearts (not marinated), chopped
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
16 ounces sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 11x15 inch pan with oil. Layer all the salsa in pan, followed by the chopped artichokes, and then cheddar and Monterey Jack cheeses on top. This can be covered and refrigerated overnight at this point. Whisk together the eggs, sour cream and salt and pepper to taste. Pour this egg mixture over all layers. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until set and lightly browned. Yield 18 servings. Serve for brunch with a Sonoma County sparkling wine.
