Getting to Healdsburg

Flying into Charles M. Schulz-Sonoma County Airport (STS) located in Santa Rosa is the quickest and easiest way to get to Healdsburg. The airport is only about 15 minutes from the airport so this is by far the most convenient airport to fly in to when visiting Healdsburg.

Many people also fly into the San Francisco International Airport. From there, Healdsburg is about 90 miles north. If there is no traffic, it will take a little over an hour and a half to get there by car. While the Santa Rosa airport is closer, more people fly into San Francsico airport since there are more flights.
