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.
Go for a jaunt from Sonoma to Petaluma to see Marin French Cheese Company about 36 minutes away. Dedicate the 17th (Wed) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. And it doesn't end there: join the crowd at Sears Point Racing Experience, steep yourself in history at Lachryma Montis, stroll through Sonoma Coast State Beach, and do a tasting at Gundlach Bundschu Winery.

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.
