I love town squares and plazas but I especially love Sonoma Plaza. In the summer they have the market in the square staring at 5 pm on Tuesdays. Great food selection, fresh produce, and music. Grab your picnic blanket, your friends, and your favorite bottle of wine and you have a party! The food selections and wine tastings selections on... More

A neat place to walk around and have lunch or taste chocolate or see the sights. The many shops and restaurants, buildings and parks, walkpaths and alleyways are a delight to explore. We didn't plan enough time to see much of the area but it is quite exceptional.

Some of the best restaurants in Sonoma are around this pretty square. Amazingly we had no problem parking for an early dinner on a Thursday night, or for breakfast both Friday and Saturday mornings. Really good place for families. We enjoyed mingling with the locals and their dogs.

We stopped at the visitors center first (east side of the plaza) & were given great recommendations for where to stop. We were headed out to the coast and wanted to take lunch with us. We bought Vella Cheese and bread at the Basque bakery. Fresh and local, yum! There were also plenty of other fun and interesting shops, plenty... More

There are a lot of amazing things to do in and around the city of Sonoma, California; located in Sonoma County, just to clarify (some loosely just say "Sonoma" when they're referring to the whole county). The Sonoma Plaza is the heart of the town. It was created in the style of South American/Mexican town plazas ... a large, grassy... More

Just walking through the plaza, sitting under the beautiful old trees or walking around the plaza and visiting the shops is a nice way to spend a few hours. There are also many historical sites, including one of the 26 California missions, the furthest north.
