Just out of the shadow of its larger Bay Area neighbors to the south, Santa Rosa is enjoying its status as a welcoming community with natural indulgences on its side. Located in the epicenter of America's wine country, Santa Rosa makes an ideal base for touring wineries and meeting with vintners - or experience both on the Napa Valley Wine Train. The same conditions that produce award-winning wine also lend themselves to farm-fresh foods available at farmers' markets, like the Santa Rosa Downtown Market, and orchards.
Offering more than just some of the best wine in the nation, Santa Rosa is home to interesting history. For example, famed cartoonist Charles M. Schulz of Peanuts fame was a Santa Rosa resident, and the city has erected the Charles M. Schulz Museum, dedicated to his work. There's also a number of arts and cultural events close by - the Santa Rosa Symphony performs regularly during concert season. And don't miss a visit to Safari West Wildlife Preserve and African Tent Camp, a wildlife preserve where the whole family can experience some of nature's most beautiful animals in a natural habitat.
Conveniently located in the heart of Northern California's spectacular Wine Country, Sonoma County Airport (STS) is just a short walk from ground transportation and affordable parking. You will give up long, costly drives to other airports, spend less time waiting in line, and get to your destination faster when you fly STS!
Sonoma County Airport serves a five-county region that includes the world class destinations of Napa, Mendocino, and Marin Counties, as well as Lake County and Sonoma County.
