Just call it the Capital of Wine Country. With its central location (about 15 minutes from Healdsburg and 25 from Sonoma), plus a wealth of big-city culture (its symphony is one of the oldest in the West), Santa Rosa is the star of Sonoma County.

Make it the hub of your next trip to wine country with this week's Escape to the Flamingo Conference Resort and Spa, offering a two-night stay for two, Sundays through Thursdays ($179) or Fridays and Saturdays ($229), in a Superior Room.

Built in 1957, this family-owned resort was designed in the tradition of the Las Vegas Flamingo, with clean lines, curved glass walls, and staggered stone. Today, its 170 rooms are appointed with up-to-date furnishings and cable TV, and with your Escape you'll have access to the Montecito Heights Health Club, boasting various workout rooms, Jacuzzis, steam rooms and saunas, a pool, and more.

With your $20 resort credit, you'll want to start your day with an asparagus frittata and fresh-squeezed orange juice at the on-site Terrace Grille Restaurant, serving three meals daily and offering a wide variety of fresh dishes for every appetite. Or, save your voucher for a nightcap at The Flamingo Lounge, which hosts live music, karaoke, and other events throughout the week.

Then it's off to Santa Rosa's evergreen draw: wine tasting. You'll have two vouchers, valid at more than 15 wineries around the Sonoma Valley, that earn you discounts along the way. Ask the concierge at Flamingo for tips and desirable routes to help you make the most of your time.

Just across the street from the Flamingo, Montgomery Village—home to about 20 men's and women's clothing stores, plus restaurants and other retail options—brims with the city's best shopping. Meanwhile, less than two miles away, the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens offers visitors a tour of the late botanist's home and a stroll through his life's work: a variety of specialty gardens. Or, check out statues of Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and Woodstock at the Charles M. Schulz Museum.

With a brand-new concert hall opening this fall to accommodate the Santa Rosa Symphony, plus a recent increase in daily direct flights into the city's Sonoma County Airport, the Capital of Wine Country is definitely on the map. Go ahead: Stick a thumbtack on it.

  • "Not only does it have a cool, retro vibe, but the staff is always amazing. The bartender, Will, is very friendly ... and the food is great, so you don't have to leave the resort to eat."
