We stopped here on our way through Northern California. The square is full of shops but we fell in love with all the families seating in the park enjoying time together. We decided to get some sourdough and cheese and join them. Such a relaxing atmosphere. We people watched, laughed and enjoyed our time.

Sonoma Plaza is a neat square in downtown Sonoma. There's a few eateries, wine tasting rooms, and shops encircling the visitor center and mini park. There's not much to do, but you can appreciate the history and scenery.

We were on a tour through our cruise ship and stopped here to have lunch. We walked around the village - lots of eateries and interesting little shops to peek in. There is lots to see and take in. Lots of parking in the rear and trees/shade while you walked the square blocks... We were looking for a drug store... More

The plaza is actually 4 blcoks surrounding the town Hall and Park. There are numerous shops and restaurants on each block with wine tasting shops as well. There are a couple of historical buildings as well. If you are looking for souvenirs try the Sonoma Cheese Factory store.

The Sonoma Plaza is a very nice plaza with a small park at its center. Shops are in every direction and walking is minimal. On weekdays, parking should be easily available.

The Sonoma Plaza is a great place to spend some time in Sonoma if you do not plan to visit wineries in the Sonoma Valley or if you need to relax between some wine-tasting experiences ! My first recommendation would be to go the Visitor Center or the Tourist Information Office behind the Town Hall and ask for a map... More

Very nice park and city hall building at the plaza. Surrounding the plaza is numerous great wine tasting rooms, and there are plenty of great wine experiences here and inspiration to maybe go visit the winery. Great Restaurants as well, we were having lunch and the girl and the fig, highly recommendable. All in all Sonoma plaza and surroundings is... More

This is our third trip to Sonoma over the years and the one thing that has not changed is Sonoma Plaza. The shops might change but the general quaint feeling to the area has not been lost or commercialized. It is a nice place to wander around, grab food for a picnic and eat outside or to go shopping.
