Immerse yourself in the Wine Country lifestyle in the small town of Sonoma, which takes good wine, good food, the arts, history, and laid-back living and blends it into the ultimate getaway. Pick and choose among the places on this two-day itinerary to craft your perfect 48 hours in Sonoma.
The town is in the heart of the Sonoma Valley, on the eastern border of Sonoma County. There are no superhighways or interstates into or out of the valley, just two-lane state highways and local roads — all the better to slow down and start taking it easy.
From the north, in the city of Santa Rosa take Highway 12 east off of Highway 101, and follow 12 all the way into the town of Sonoma.
From the south, take multi-lane Highway 101 north about 20 miles to Highway 37 east, north on Highway 37 for less than 10 miles, and north on Highway 121, follow it when it turns, then head up Highway 12 into the town of Sonoma. It may sound complicated, but it’s an easy, gorgeous drive.
