Sonoma, CA Travel Guide

The historic city of Sonoma is located in northern California and it is the centerpiece of the famous winemaking region collectively known as Sonoma Valley. Sonoma is known for its unique shops, fabulous restaurants, art galleries and historic Sonoma Plaza.

Located on the north end of the plaza is Sonoma State Historic Park, home to a number of 19th-century adobe buildings including a hotel, Mexican military barracks, and the Mission San Francisco Solano. The Mission was the last California Mission built and it is the most north mission in Alta California.

The square within the plaza has a popular children's play area, amphitheater, duck pond and—during the summer—a very popular weekly farmer's market. It is also features a historic marker dedicated to the revolt that helped usher in California's independence from Mexico.
