This is a fun, all-weather location where you can spend the day browsing unusual shops, dining from A to Z, and wine tasting in several local tasting rooms, as well as exploring the old Sonoma Mission and soldiers' barracks. There are a number of short treks off the square where you can find more wine tasting rooms, shops and a... More

A good variety of shops (clothing, home decor), art galleries, and restaurants surround the square and make for a fun, entertaining afternoon. Weekends bring events to the square - art shows, festivals, or artisans selling their creations. I'm local, head up to Sonoma regularly, and never tire of spending time on the square.

After you explore Sonoma Plaza where you can enjoy the shops and restaurants, walk just one block east (behind the Barracks) to find a wonderful walking path. If you head north (left), you will meander past the Little League fields, Vallejo's House and open space below Sonoma Mountain. If you go south (right), you will pass by the old vineyards... More

There's something for everyone at the Sonoma Square from historic buildings to tour, to good stuff to eat & drink, to shopping.

Clearly filled with tourists (like ourselves), the plaza consists of a large number of over-prices clothing store, gift shops, restaurants, and wine-tasting store fronts. All advertise sales reducing the $300 item to $150 -- only $100 more than you would pay elsewhere. Still, it's a place to spend time and let your blood alcohol level drop!

I love the mixture of thrift shops and higher end stores in one location. It's a little bit of everything for everyone. Plus, you can't beat the farmers market in the center of town on Tuesday nights.
