Reasons to Vacation in Sonoma County

Eating, drinking, hiking, kayaking, biking, driving--it's all first-class here in Sonoma County. Following are a few of the reasons we should be on your short-list of vacation spots.

Napa is famous, Sonoma not so much. So Sonoma County is less crowded.

Sonoma has an awesome coastline. The Pacific Ocean is at our door with sunsets every night!

Speaking of natural beauty, there are old growth Redwoods, oak forests, rivers, and those miles of coastline to explore.

You can find that "total escape" in places like Occidental or Bodega Bay or you can get that touristy vibe in Healdsburg.

Speaking of cute little towns, besides Healdsburg there's Sonoma, Sebastopol, and Petaluma's downtown. If you like really little there's Graton, Freestone, and Glen Ellen.

Besides the coastal town of Bodega Bay there's Jenner and Gualala.

There are over 400 wineries most of which you've never heard of. And most of which you could never find their great wines back home.

If you don't like it too hot of too cold Sonoma County has that Mediterranean Climate you've heard about (and you don't have to all the way to the Mediterranean to experience it).

Speaking of the Mediterranean, the food is also heavily influenced by the part of the world with a fresh California touch to it.

Some other reasons to visit: Charles Schulz Museum, Fort Ross, Green Music Center, Luther Burbank Home, Safari West, and Sonoma Raceway.

What are you waiting for? Come say "hi." We'll have a great meal, a glass of wine, and a nice ocean breeze waiting for you.
