A Unique Life
With vibrant towns and cities scattered among its million acres, it’s been said that visiting Sonoma County is like a trip back in time, with casual culture yet world class wine and dining. All you need is a willingness to explore whether it’s a morning at a local farmers market, a hike along the coast, cork hopping some of the best wineries or trying out the places “locals” flock to for great eats.
Sonoma County’s quality of life is one of the best. What was once a very rural area that was driven almost entirely by agricultural trade today has diversified into a blend of many economic opportunities from tourism to high tech without losing its rural roots. A five to ten minute drive from just about anywhere in the county will put you in some of the most beautiful countryside you will ever come across. Vineyards, open pastures, mountains, streams, rivers and a Pacific Ocean coastline that can take your breath away are just a few of the many sites you can see.
Sonoma County also has a vibrant arts and entertainment menu to choose from on any given weekend. From symphonies to acclaimed musicians, along with great local talent, you can always find a venue that offers a fun time no matter your age. If you like history and art you will have many choices almost anywhere you go. If the outdoors is where you want to be you will have plenty to do with thousands of acres of park and recreation land that offers hiking, horseback riding, biking, swimming, boating or just an old fashion family picnic at one of many parks or wineries. To be a thriving community you need a solid education system for everyone. Sonoma County boasts some of the most acclaimed schools and colleges in the San Francisco Bay Area in both the public and private sectors.
