Fodor’s Travel Intelligence shows their smarts by naming Healdsburg, “the best small town in America.” As in Number 1, followed by also-rans like Bozeman, Sedona and St. Augustine.
“Our editors poured over the possibilities,” blogger Sandra Ramani tells us, “ultimately picking the winners based on criteria like population (all are under 50,000), and draws like great local eats, interesting museums and cultural points, and noteworthy natural attractions or outdoor adventures."
But this last part? “The result is a list that should inspire travelers of all walks to fill up the gas tank and hit the road.” We’re not sure that’s what we want. Let’s just appreciate the lifestyle that makes us Number 1.
“Napa and Sonoma's quieter wine country sister mixes contemporary cool with plenty of Norman Rockwell charm—not to mention mouth-watering eats and drinks...”
“… the town of 11,254 manages to balance the hype with a relaxed pace and diverse price points, meaning visitors don't have to break the bank to enjoy the bounties of wine country”
It does sound nice, doesn’t it? Healdsburg Patch congratulates the editors of Fodor’s Travel Intelligence for exactly that, and thank them for the honor.
