Windsor is a beautiful larger town in central California just a few miles north of Santa Rosa. Windsor was settled in the mid 1800s by Europeans and soon after it started to grow into a larger town. It is named Windsor because Hiram Lewis, the postmaster from England, said the town reminded him of the grounds of Windsor Castle. Unfortunately, the blooming city was destroyed in a fire in 1905, and it was in dire need of repair. The town was saved by highway construction investors and soon the town was connected to major cities. Windsor was and still is a farming town where a large part of the area is dedicated to crops, apple farms, and grape yards. Due to this agricultural production there are a lot of wineries and farmer's markets in the area, so if you like to sit down and enjoy a great glass of wine or attend to a wine tasting event, this is a good place to do so. For the more active types, there are tons more activities here in Windsor.
