Whether you sip, eat or view your way through this region close to San Francisco but a million miles a way, you're sure to become smitten with Sonoma and the people who live there. Wine lovers will find plenty of outstanding wineries for every palate, offering tasting rooms, barrel tours and picnic spaces to take in the views thanks to the hilly region. Foodies will find local fare that inspires culinary trends with unique restaurants and cafes, often seen savoring wine in the Sonoma Plaza where public consumption of alcohol is permitted. And, those looking to take in the sights and views of Sonoma County can get inspired by Sonoma's coast and explore the tide pools of Bodega Bay. Then, head to Petaluma, pick up a walking tour map and saunter through the shops that seem to have been lost in time. But, regardless of how you spend your time in Sonoma County, you're sure to go back again and again.
