Just dropped by on a Sunday, since we were in the area. There are a lot of interesting historical places nearby like the Barracks Museum, a mission church, old houses and a boarding house/restaurant, etc. We ate lunch at a very good restaurant and later had an ice cream at the ice cream shop.

... and great restaurants. A nice spot to give your palette a break from wine tasting. Pack a lunch and have an impromptu picnic on the lawn. If you have kids with you, there are swings for them to enjoy. There are also public restrooms available, which are usually well-maintained. The plaza is also the social hub for Sonoma, and... More

We had the pleasure of seeing Frank Bey perform at Sonoma Plaza's Valley of the Moon Vintage Festival. This wasn't planned, but it was a winner. Had a great moment of past music!

This is a wonderful place to spend the day. There are many small boutiques and shops, wonderful wine tasting rooms, fantastic food, and enormous amount of California history. It's where they first raised the California State Bear Flag. It is also where they filmed some the famous movie.
