If you could live anywhere in the world, Sonoma County would have to be near the top of your list. The climate is mild and pleasant year ’round and the land is so beautiful and scenic it will take your breath away. You can visit the ocean, kayak down the Russian River, hike in the redwoods, see wild animals, go mountain biking or explore our extraordinary selection of wineries and restaurants — all in the same day!
Our population is spread across one good sized city (Santa Rosa), several smaller towns and then disseminates throughout the countryside into rural life at its finest.
We have a great agricultural heritage and our farmers have led the way toward organic, sustainable, biodynamic and small craft farm products.
Something for Everyone
We have world class performing arts, friendly retirement communities, great medical facilities and overall, a pretty tolerant community. Many excellent artists make this their home and exhibit and perform at the many galleries and venues across the county.
Whether you have a love of outdoor activities or a penchant for oenology and gastronomy, Sonoma County has an unbeatable lifestyle.
