Beautiful plaza.

Beautiful plaza with a variety of places to eat, many little shops including an ice cream shop and a lovely park.

Lots of quaint shops, great places to eat, and of course wine tasting rooms! What else can a girl ask for? Throw a lovely park (complete with duck pond) in the middle and you have a fantastic afternoon...

We left Sonoma wondering why we don't live in this wonderful welcoming little town. The town square is a great family friendly place to spend part of your time in Sonoma valley. The square has a myriad of restaurant options (including Sunflower and Basque for breakfast - yum). The center of the square has large well maintained restroom faciities and... More

Been to the Sonoma plaza (Square) on many prior occasions and always enjoyed ourselves. This most recent time was equally enjoyable as we had the opportunity to have lunch and morning coffee at a couple of great restaurants on the plaza (Murphy's for an authentic Irish lunch, and coffee at Girl & a Fig). Perfect location to watch people and... More

This vacation town is a relaxing get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can pretty much walk every where so there's no reason to not indulge in the wine! The plaza square is pleasant with eateries, wine tastings, and a park that is perfect for a blanket picnic. It's outside Napa Valley so it's less overrun... More

How can anyone not like Sonoma's Plaza? Apparently laid out by General Vallejo himself, who was a former surveyor before becoming the governor around 1840, I think. Sonoma's Plaza is the biggest in California, kept pristine by the public which obviously cherishes it. Always a good spot for a picnic or a stroll, and don't miss the Farmer's Market every... More

There is something for everyone at the Sonoma Plaza. There are many shops for the wife and a few bars and restaurants for the hubby. Also, the plaza is filled with families enjoying the playground and grass areas. Instead of homeless drifters, like many of the parks in most cities.
