Planning a holiday in San Francisco? How about a side trip to sunny Santa Rosa, California? Savour the bounty of Sonoma Valley just beyond the doors of your Santa Rosa accommodation and enjoy easy access to San Francisco, beautiful scenery and scores of first-rate vineyards. There will be plenty of wine but no “wine-ing” on this trip!
Drop your luggage at your accommodation in Santa Rosa, and head out for a visit to the Charles M. Schulz Museum (or perhaps the "Peanuts Gallery"?), where you'll explore the origins of beloved comic strip characters Snoopy and Charlie Brown. Later, swing by the Luther Burbank Home & Gardens to pay your respects to another of Santa Rosa's renowned former citizens, a horticulturalist who created hundreds of new plants through hybridisation, including the popular Shasta daisy. If a tour here inspires you to seek out Santa Rosa's other botanic charms, Annadel State Park offers excellent wildflower viewing in the spring and summer. Not that the park isn't worth a visit the rest of the year: fishing, hiking and biking are possible year round. In the evening, head over to the Railroad Square Historic District, Santa Rosa's quaint downtown shopping and dining neighbourhood. Walk off your supper along the Prince Greenway pedestrian path, and get back in time to catch a show at the 6th Street Playhouse.
Cruise into Charles M. Schulz–Sonoma County Airport (STS), where you can rent a car or take Sonoma County Transit bus number 62 down to Santa Rosa. It's just 13 km, so it won't take long. Once in town, get around on foot or by bike, or rely on the city buses.
