  • Sonoma State Historic Park is the site of the northernmost Franciscan Mission in California and birthplace of the California State Bear Flag. Unlike most parks with a single plot of land and a continuous boundary, Sonoma State Historic Park is a scattering of historical attractions consisting of six midtown locations near Sonoma's Plaza. They are: Mission San Francisco Solano, the Blue Wing Inn, Sonoma Barracks, the Toscano Hotel, the Servants Quarters (the remains of La Casa Grande) and Vallejo's Home. Vallejo's Home is also called Lachryma Montis, and is less than a mile west of the Plaza. It was the estate of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo, Military Commander and Director of Colonization of the Northern Frontier.

    Open daily 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

    Closed Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day.

    Mission Tours - Friday, Saturday, and Sunday: 11 a.m. - 3 p.m.

    Vallejo Home Tours - Saturday and Sunday: 1 - 4 p.m.

    • Close to town and great hikes

      We walked from our hotel in town and loved the hiking. Some take you up to a great view down on Sonoma. The tourist information service has a good brochure about hikes in the area.
