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.

The Sonoma Plaza is a lovely way to spend the afternoon. Plenty of opportunities for wine tasting, many good restaurants to choose from, and lovely and diverse shops. The park often has events as well, to add to your fun.

For the best small, unspoiled town feeling, its the best. Wine, dine, art, shopping and special events often.

I visit allot of different towns that have similar squares surrounded by shops and restaurants. Sonoma definitely takes a step above the rest. You can't go wrong with all the great selections of wines, and great local food. I really liked trying the cheese with local wines. This is a good starting point a s well to get winery recommendations.

If there is one thing to dislike about the Sonoma Plaza, it is that parking is at a premium. But that is also an indication that it is probably worth the visit.

We visited Sonoma Plaza a couple different times to eat and walk around to shop. There is plenty to do in the Square. Just stroll down the street, pop into the stores, enjoy a glass of wine in the tasting rooms - definitely a great stop.
