Park Landmark Must See
At the heart of Sonoma Valley, Sonoma Plaza offers historical sightseeing, shopping, dining, and arts. See the early 20th-century city hall that's still in use and the Bear Flag monument that marks the spot of an 1846 Mexican-American War revolt. Browse the shops for clothing, bags, jewelry, and books. Because of its proximity to wine country, you can choose from among an array of wine cellars and tasting rooms and indulge in local and imported brands. You'll find plenty of galleries here that feature historical and contemporary pieces from around the world, and the area offers numerous spots for photography. Start your visit at the visitors' bureau on the east side of the plaza. Use our Sonoma trip itinerary builder website to add Sonoma Plaza and other attractions to your Sonoma vacation plans.

  • Vibrant historical plaza with over about 25 wine tasting bars and wine shops. Great restaurants. Family friendly park. Picnic tables. Last California Mission. 1823. Original Bear Flag 1846. There is something for everyone.
  • Cute little California plaza. Nice shops with artisan crafts and food/cafes. Went on a Monday so nice and quiet, not sure what the parking and traffic situation is like on a weekend. For us it was smooth sailing.
