Tucked between Costa Brava, Spain and the cottage country of Ontario is Sonoma County, one of the top travel destinations for 2012 according to National Geographic.

Why am I not surprised? I liked it so much that after many years of touristing trips and then horse boarding here, I moved here in 1999 from the Bay Area. Now I help clients and friends from all over the world find the perfect property here. Meanwhile I am constantly amazed at the beauty of Sonoma County, from the one of the most spectacular rugged coasts in the world to the redwoods, vineyards, horse farms and orchards from Sebastopol to Healdsburg to Glen Ellen and Sonoma.

Anyway when I heard the news that National Geographic named Sonoma County as one of the top twenty places to visit in 2012, I couldn’t agree more. I am a shameless booster! ( and I have to say some of those other spots look pretty tempting as well! The Virunga Volcanoes!….Take a look!
