2020 is a leap year, which means we have an extra day during February. My recommendation is to use the additional day to travel out to Sonoma County and see a live show. February 29th does fall on a Saturday, so make a weekend out of it and enjoy what Wine Country has to offer in the middle of winter (think cozying up by the fire with a glass of wine in one hand, and your significant other in the other—see our guide to the top Sonoma County winter resorts for details).

If you are in the mood for love, or simply having a great time with friends, check out some of the live shows coming to Sonoma County in February 2020:

Brittany Aquamarine + Jaz & Crow
