Guests at Inn at Tules, lodging in Sonoma, know that they can count on the staff for information about the Sonoma County wine tours. The staff there is always eager to offer advice on activities in the area. The staff has detailed knowledge of the three to four nearby wineries. In fact, the Inn offers bike loans, thus aiding transport of Inn guests to the closest Sonoma County wine tours.
Guests at MacArthur Place, another one of the lodgings in Sonoma, can learn about some of the earliest Sonoma County wine tours. That two-story structure, which was built in the 1850's, has served as a temporary shelter for many visitors to the County of Sonoma. Horses trotted past the old picket fence, the fence that still stands in front of MacArthur Place.
Those horses pulled buggies, some of which ventured out for a taste of the early Sonoma County wine tours. Those buggies wound their way out to the orchards that used to surround the old MacArthur ranch. Today the old Victorian house, now called MacArthur Place, treats its guests to a rose garden, a fish pond, fountains and sculpture. Those outdoor features have replaced the old ranch and orchards.
One romantic feature on the land around MacArthur Place has not changed in the past 150 plus years. That feature is the Nathanson Creek on the western side of the property. The waters of that Creek flow past many orchards. Thus the waters of that Creek have long added a touch of romance to many different Sonoma County wine tours.
The charms of MacArthur House beckon younger and older adults, but they fail to extend a special invitation to children. When families with children travel to the County of Sonoma, then they find that one of the best places to stay is the Best Western Dry Creek Inn. That Inn prides itself on being both family and pet friendly.
At the Dry Creek Inn children under the age of 16 can stay free. Those children will find that there is a skateboard park very close to the Inn. Parents might want to allow their children time to skateboard, before or after taking one of the Sonoma County wine tours. Those tours are facilitated by the services at Dry Creek Inn.
The Dry Creek Inn has a number of ways to help parents, as they prepare their family members for a tour of the Sonoma wineries. For example, the Inn has free winery maps. It also offers its guests a wine tasting coupon, a coupon good at any Simi winery. The Dry Creek Inn seeks to bring families back to the Dry Creek Valley.
The Dry Creek Inn hopes to make every stay enjoyable for its youngest guests, so that they are eager to partake in the information at the wineries. After all a visit to a winery comprises more than just tasting the wine. It also provides the tourist with an expanded knowledge of the wine-making process.
A tour of any Sonoma County winery can give a child a deeper appreciation for the effort that goes into the making of wine. It can disclose the mystery behind the way that each orchard grape undergoes a magical transformation, a transformation into the ingredient for a delicious beverage.
