Set in the heart of one of the United States' most esteemed wine-producing regions, just 45 minutes from San Francisco, Sonoma boasts colonial Mexican architecture, including a mission.
Attractions like Wine Tours & Tastings and Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Sonoma's surroundings by going to B Cellars Vineyards and Winery (in Oakville) and St. Helena (Modus Operandi Cellars, V. Sattui Winery, &more). There's lots more to do: walk around Sonoma Plaza, do a tasting at Gundlach Bundschu Winery, explore the world behind art at Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, and don't miss a visit to Sonoma Barracks.
