Where Everything Comes Together

Located less than an hour's drive north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa serves as a convenient hub for travelers on their way to the world-famous Napa Valley wine country.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Safari West and Bennett Valley. When in Santa Rosa, make a side trip to see Muir Woods National Monument in Mill Valley, approximately Mill Valley away. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Charles M. Schulz Museum, soar above the sights with Up & Away Ballooning, look for gifts at Petaluma Seed Bank, and get a taste of the local shopping with Valley of the Moon Pottery & North Eagle Gallery.
