Seniors Visit Santa Rosa

UnknownJust 55 miles north of San Francisco, senior travelers will find Santa Rosa overflowing with what folks love about California: wine country and farm country, redwood forests and rivers, lakes and ocean. And in the center, a charming, thriving downtown, lined with intriguing shops and restaurants that delight casual diners and epicureans alike.

The population is around 175,000 inhabitants making it the largest city in California’s North Coast, Wine Country and the North Bay; the fifth most populous city in the San Francisco Bay Area. Adding to its scenic beauty, Santa Rosa Creek marks its course through Santa Rosa’s downtown.


Santa Rosa, is located in the heart of the famed Sonoma County wine country, approximately one hour north of San Francisco, and Oakland. Santa Rosa enjoys warm summers and cool wet winters making it ideal for vineyards. Santa Rosa is the largest city, main hub and seat of Sonoma County.

 Seniors Enjoy Wine Tasting

In addition to the many superb Santa Rosa Wineries senior visitors will find several quality Santa Rosa Restaurants in the area. Santa Rosa wineries are spread out over a large area and are located in 3 different wine regions; Russian River Valley, Bennett Valley and the Sonoma Valley.


Wineries range from large corporate holdings to small mom and pop operations. Senior eonophiles, can enjoy visiting a variety of enjoyable tasting rooms.

 Seniors discover microbrews, fun fairs, cycling on road and off, a foodie paradise as well as a birding paradise: great blue herons, great egrets, snowy egrets and black-crowned herons. 

Seniors Meet Charlie Brown


For visitors who enjoy sports, the Bay Area to the south of Santa Rosa is home to numerous professional sports franchises, including: Oakland Athletics and San Francisco Giants, San Francisco Dragons (Lacrosse), Oakland Raiders and San Francisco 49ers, and the San Francisco Seals (soccer).

Then there’s the Charles M. Schultz Museum and Charlie Brown in person and a visit to the Railroad Square Historic District. The Santa Rosa Wine Tour would be fun for my wife and me and perhaps after that, a memorable balloon ride.

In 2007, the Santa Rosa Chamber of Commerce adopted a new slogan, “California’s Cornucopia”.  Enjoy your visit and the host of amenities of this scenic community. -jeb
