Love for Winters in a “Local Getaways” article
“Local Getaways” Travel editor Janice Nieder writes glowingly of her discovery of Winters in Yolo County.
Nothing against Davis- a most enjoyable college town, perfect for biking and loaded with art galleries and fun, ethnic eateries, or historic Woodland, but it’s the baby-small town of Winters, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, that gets my vote. Even the locals think their town is “cute as a button”. Stop in at the Visitor Center to pick up a map for a do-it-yourself, Historic Homes Of Winters Tour, or just wander the picturesque three-square blocks that make-up downtown. When I spied the nostalgic white gazebo perched in the center of Rotary Park, I almost took a seat to see if the 76 trombones from “The Music Man” would soon be marching in.
Article on a favorite local event venue, Park Winters
George Washington Scott, one of the founders of Scottsdale, AZ, originally built the magnificent Inn at Park Winters, as a private residence in the 1800’s. The Queen Anne Victorian mansion was recently repurposed into a super-stylish, laid-back, boutique hotel/event space-perfect for savoring the slow life in style. Resulting from the combined passion and shared vision of its two newbie proprietors: John Martin, fondly referred to as “ The Bride Whisper” and his low-profile partner, Rafael Galiano, who jokingly refers to himself as merely “The Groundskeeper” Park Winters is the kind of place that once visited holds a place deep in your heart.
