In the heart of Sonoma Valley, the charming village of Glen Ellen (pop. 784) is steeped in a blend of Sonoma County wines, local dining delights, and the valley's natural beauties.
Glen Ellen is also famous as the last home of Jack London, author of "Call of the Wild" and numerous other books, who lived there from 1905 until his death in 1916, at the age of 40. London's Beauty Ranch is now the 39-acre Jack London State Historic Park. In the summer, don’t miss Transcendence Theatre’s Broadway Under the Stars performances in the park's old winery ruins.
