    Picture yourself in Petaluma

    Discover picture-perfect Petaluma, an historic Sonoma town a little over 30 miles north of San Francisco. Whether it’s the chance to kayak along the Petaluma River, explore the walkable historic downtown, or sample award-winning food and wine at source that brings you here, you’ll find the city’s activities and attractions come complete with a generous helping of small-town charm. Petaluma vacation rentals offer a great base for a stay in this northern California hotspot, whether you’re planning a romantic weekend getaway or a longer break with family, friends, or both.

    Explore Petaluma’s historic downtown

    Petaluma has long since been known as a magnet for shoppers. Trawl for bargains in one of more than 50 factory outlets or head to the one-of-a-kind stores in the city’s historic downtown. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, you’ll find everything from art and antiques to vintage clothing and collectibles up for grabs. When you’ve chosen your must-haves, spending a few hours at the Petaluma Arts Center, located in the historic train depot 3 blocks east of downtown, is a lovely way to round off the day before heading back to your Petaluma vacation rental.

    Tour Sonoma Valley wineries near Petaluma

    Passing on the wine in Petaluma would be rather like sightseeing in Rome and skipping the Colosseum. The Adobe Road Winery Tasting Room is located right in the heart of town although it can be great fun to search a little further afield for the perfect Sonoma Valley wine. The Buena Vista Winery, a designated Historic Landmark and home to one of wine country’s favorite picnic spots, is located within a 40-minute drive of many Petaluma vacation rentals. This landmark spot offers up some unique experiences such as wine tasting paired with classical music and ‘winemaker for the day’.

    Soak up the sun in Petaluma

    If you’re enjoying a vacation in Petaluma over the summer months, particularly in July and August, you can expect temperatures to be in the not-too-shabby low 80s. That’s not to say that summer is the only time to visit. Spring and fall see slightly lower temperatures but still get their fair share of sunny days. This can be the perfect time to set off on a walking tour of the area. Many travelers enjoy the Hollywood Tour, a walk around the parts of the town used in movies from Peggy Sue Got Married to the somewhat raunchier Basic Instinct.

    Outdoor adventure comes easy in Petaluma

    Petaluma’s year-round mild climate means that outdoor adventure is always on the menu. A natural harbor on the Petaluma River places sailors, motor boaters, and kayakers within steps of the hub of activity downtown. Those who prefer their outdoor fix to come courtesy of green spaces will find that Helen Putnam and Shollenberger Parks fit the bill perfectly. If you have more time to spare, don’t rule out a beach day. Petaluma may be landlocked but it’s within a 30-minute drive of the Point Reyes National Seashore, an idyllic spot where features include the cliffside Alamere Falls and Wildcat Beach.
