Sonoma

Set in the heart of one of the United States' most esteemed wine-producing regions, just 45 minutes from San Francisco, Sonoma boasts colonial Mexican architecture, including a mission.
Change things up with these side-trips from Sonoma: Calistoga (Sterling Vineyards & Castello di Amorosa) and St. Helena (V. Sattui Winery, Beringer Vineyards, &more). Dedicate the 27th (Fri) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's lots more to do: stroll around Sonoma Plaza, look for gifts at Oxbow Public Market, learn about winemaking at Judd's Hill MicroCrush, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

To see photos, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Sonoma trip planner.

San Francisco to Sonoma is an approximately 1.5-hour car ride. You can also take a bus; or do a combination of subway and bus. Expect a bit cooler evenings in Sonoma when traveling from San Francisco in November, with lows around 41°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to go by car back home.

Less than an hour from San Francisco, Sonoma County bills itself as the "Number 1 Wine Destination in the U.S." for good reason. Though not as famous as the neighboring Napa Valley, Sonoma County features a rolling landscape dotted with over 250 wineries. The county ranks among the country's most agriculturally productive regions. It turns out not only some of America's finest grapes, but also hops, prunes, and apples. The county manages to cling to its leisurely way of life--which is how the local nickname "Slow-noma" got started (despite the fact that the valley attracts nearly 8 million tourists annually)--and is really more about simple enjoyment than a jam-packed sightseeing itinerary. Napa may be better known, but as the crowds of visitors continue to clog the roads there, Sonoma's appeal as a vacation destination only grows.
