What to expect when visiting Sonoma County after the Fires

Many travelers are wondering what Sonoma County is like a year after the Northern California wildfires in October 2017. While devastating, only 10 percent of Sonoma County’s 1 million acres was impacted by the October 2017 fires. Much of the terrain has seen regrowth and most of the county has retained its pristine landscape. 

Of the more than 90 percent of Sonoma County  not affected by the wildfires, you'll find vineyards, nature and history parks, beautiful vistas, oak-studded hills, a dramatic Pacific coastline, and towering redwoods.
