Sonoma Things to Do

Whether you are a visitor or resident, you will never run out of things to do in Sonoma. If you are a history buff, you will want to visit the Sonoma State Historic Park, which is a California State Park located in the center of town. The park consists of six sites: The Mission San Francisco, the Sonoma Barracks (sometimes called the Presidio of Sonoma,) the Blue Wing Inn, La Casa Grande, Lachryma Montis and the Toscano Hotel.

The beautiful Sonoma Plaza is surrounded by art galleries, clothing stores, wine tasting rooms, and restaurants. Adding to Sonoma’s charm, there is a wealth of boutique-type specialty stores, likely to please you, no matter where your interests lie. Seasonally, the square hosts a popular weekly farmer's market, which is among the best in Sonoma County.

Despite acclaim for its wine and food, the Sonoma Valley is an ideal location for outdoor enthusiasts. From winery strolls to challenging trails, residents and visitors will find trails of varying degrees of length and difficulty.

Located at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn is the Willow Stream Spa, where visitors come from all over the world to enjoy the legendary thermal mineral springs.

Children will enjoy Train Town’s petting zoo and quarter-scale railroad, which takes passengers on a 20-minute ride through its 500,000-square-foot park. Many events happen weekly so check back regularly to make sure you don't miss an event.
