A nice spot to wander and relax after lunch. Lots of interesting shops and eateries, and a big leafy park to enjoy. Close to the mission.

What better way to get the full flavor of this beautiful region of California than a visit to the Sonoma Plaza? A walk around the square on a sunny spring April afternoon is truly a moment to be savored. The laid back vibe of this place will stay with you to the point where you know you'll need to come...

This is a lovely place to break any wineries tour outing in the Sonoma Valley, with lots of shops, a pretty park and water features in the main square, and restaurants of all sorts to choose from for lunch or a sustaining coffee stop... There is also several historic sites for those interested in the local history, as well as... More

We stayed in Napa and strolled thru Napa early in our week and stuggled to find something to see, browse, anything other than expensive restaurants or wine tasting. Not to say that we didn't enjoy Bounty Hunter and other establishments in Napa, but other than food/wine there was little to see. It was a pleasure to visit downtown Sonoma later... More

Beautiful plaza with nice shops and restaurants. Was very quaint and enjoyable to walk around here. Don't miss the mission and other historic buildings around the perimeter of the plaza.

The actual Plaza is an Eight Acre public park that was laid out by General Vallejo - it was customary in Old Spanish Days to provide an exercise area for the Military to display themselves and to impress as much as could be done with a small Battallion. Vallejo had brought only 24 soldiers from Monterey, CA, then the Capital... More

A family or a couple could spend the better part of a day here. Stroll the four corners of the Square, window shopping and deciding where to have lunch or dinner. Another option is to order sandwiches at the Cheese Factory then cross the street, find a bench, and watch the ducks in the pond.If you have children, there is... More

The people here are very down to earth and friendly. One could easily spend the day here. And, you must visit the Roche tasting room and have Harry pour your wine. He's a riot!
