We chose sunset on our way to El Dorado Kitchen for our first stroll around Sonoma Plaza and found it the perfect time and place to get into a Sonoma frame of mind. When you return in the daytime, be sure to visit the rose garden in front of City Hall.

What a great farmers market! Good food, great set up for food, drink and produce. Entertainment was excellent and the evening timeframe sets a wonderful time to enjoy all the vendors and music. Good food is waiting for any taste.

Visiting the square is a must when you are in Sonoma Valley. There is a variety of shops and restaurants to check out. I always hit up Sonoma Jacks. Its a fun stop if you love cheese, and what right minded person doesn't. The square is also a nice place for a picnic or a nap.....

This is just a great place to relax or walk though/around. Great for people watching and relaxing after a long day. Plenty of giant shade trees to enjoy a break from the summer sun.
