From eco-friendly wellness retreats to Michelin-star farm-to-table dining, top travel advisors share how to travel in style in California a little differently.


“One recent addition, NewTree Ranch in Sonoma, is one of the biggest lesser-known gems in the state, according to Melissa James, a travel advisor with Valerie Wilson Travel. “It’s only a five or seven minute drive from downtown Healdsburg, but once you enter the property you feel that you’re a million miles away,” she says. At the property, set on 120 private acres of self-sustaining farmland, guests immerse themselves in nature while feeding the ranch animals, riding horses, going forest bathing, planting trees, and enjoying massages and facials in an outdoor tent. “It’s all very interactive and eco-friendly, while still being luxury and five-star all the way,” says James.”
