It's no wonder people from all over are moving to Santa Rosa, a city once billed as "the city designed for living." Santa Rosa, California is a great place to live. Located right in the greater Bay Area, you get the best of beautiful weather, the gorgeous northern California redwoods, a great town, and access to San Francisco. The downtown area is another feature of Santa Rosa that locals love. The historic Railroad Square area boasts some beautiful historic buildings. Be sure to go on a historic walking tour of this area so you can get to know the history of Santa Rosa a little better before you call it home.
The scenery in the greater Santa Rosa area is also something to be seen. The Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve is a must see. The huge beautiful redwood trees will have you struck with awe. Who knew trees could even get so large! Also be sure to take a trip down to the Russian River or over to Jack London State Park for even more sightseeing and a good afternoon hike. Santa Rosa is in the heart of Sonoma County which means there are tons of great wineries all around. Some excellent choices for touring include the St. Francis Winery and Vineyards or the Chateau St. Jean Winery, but there are so many it might take a while to find your favorite.
Right downtown, you'll find all your shopping needs met. There are great local shops and cafes in the Old Courthouse Square area like Darcy's Fine Jeweler or Traditions, a gift shop. Or, head over to the Santa Rosa Plaza Mall where you'll find national brands like Banana Republic, The Children's Place, and The Body Shop. Plus, you can always take a trip out to the Petaluma Village Premium Outlets or all the way into the heart of San Francisco, a fashion hot spot sure to have all you're looking for. If you do stay in town, spend the afternoon biking through the Prince Memorial Greenway, a reclaimed bike and pedestrian green belt right through the heart of downtown. Then, take the evening to see the Santa Rosa Symphony or a performance by the 6th Street Playhouse.
