Ideally situated along a serene stretch of the Petaluma River, yet a mere 45-minute drive from San Francisco, Petaluma is the perfect place to stay, shop, dine and play while exploring everything Sonoma Wine Country has to offer.
Visiting Petaluma’s historic downtown area is reason enough to plan a trip. It takes little imagination to picture what life was like here back in the 1800s, as many of Petaluma’s original buildings still line the streets and remain full of life. Stately banks, towering brick mills, and rustic feed stores now house boutique clothing shops, gift stores, and antique shops. The Westside streets and alleys hold claim to superb restaurants, art galleries, and a wide range of lively pubs and music venues.
Outdoor enthusiasts visit Petaluma year-round for both road and mountain cycling tours, hiking along the gorgeous Sonoma Coast, and participating in paddle board races on the Petaluma River. The outdoor adventures in Sonoma County are endless, and there’s no better basecamp than Petaluma.
A mash-up of circa 1870’s iron buildings front old river warehouses, along with a retired mill that serves as office space for growing tech, natural food, and creative companies. Boutiques selling kitchenware, designer clothing, books, antiques and art complement the downtown. The historic Petaluma downtown is also where you go for movies, live music and acclaimed restaurants. Mini districts such as Kentucky Street, Petaluma Blvd., American Alley, Foundry Wharf, and 4th Street thrive along the walkable streets and vintage buildings.
Anchored by the Petaluma Marina and the Sheraton Hotel, the Marina District contains some of Petaluma’s most successful businesses. Shollenberger Park connects the Marina to trails that extend southward through miles of scenic river marshland. Look out for birdwatchers! Other amenities in the district include upscale condominiums and apartments that round out Petaluma’s housing options.
