Although the area is well known for its wineries, Santa Rosa is also a historic city. Visitors can uncover the history of the area through exhibitions and interactive displays at the Sonoma County Museum located in a converted 1909 post office, the historic Railroad Square with its rustic basalt stone buildings, coffee houses, world-class restaurants, or antique and specialty shops. Visitors may also take a tour of the home and gardens of famed horticulturist Luther Burbank, who introduced more than 800 varieties of plants and vegetables to the world. A resident of Santa Rosa for over 50 years, Luther dubbed Sonoma County "the chosen spot of all the earth as far as nature is concerned." Santa Rosa was also home of Charles Schultz, cartoonist of the beloved Peanuts comic strip.
For some fresh air, Santa Rosa offers 400 acres of parks. Or if you prefer to be entertained, cultural arts venues both large and small are available for residents and visitors alike. Aviation enthusiasts won't want to miss the Pacific Coast Air Museum, where more than 50 years of aviation is represented.
