We decided on the spur of the moment to visit the town of Sonoma, and we found the plaza to be a good place to start. It is the centrally-located green park (though it seems like people also use the term to refer to the many businesses which surround the park).
Speaking just of the park, many people were strolling around it the Friday (11/25) we visited. It is pleasant and tree-lined; in fact, at this time the leaves of the ginko trees were already starting to turn to a brilliant yellow.
The regional visitors bureau is located there on the east side of the park. We found the staff at the tourist office to be engaging and helpful. And there are public restrooms on the back (west side) of the building.

Perfect spot for wine tasting, dining, shopping. Bonus on Tuesday evening is the Farmers Market with food trucks and music. A perfect way to close out a day. Bring a chair or blanket and your beverage of choice. Beautiful park surrounds the City Hall building with clean bathroom facility on east side of plaza.

Great shops, restaurants and bars. Great area to walk. Hours of operation tend to be a bit odd. With there were more consistent hours of operations.

Lovely place to spend some time. Surrounded by shops and restaurants. We could have spent much more time there if we had arrived earlier in the day.

Loved walking through the park like setting with all the flowers, benches, trees and beauty of buildings mixed with nature. Surrounding the square is a great mixture of history, wineries, shops and restaurants. A great way to spend the day!

This has a very quaint feel to it and the town hall sets off the plaza well. There is a good selection of restaurants scattered around the plaza.

Small town Big welcome is the best way to describe the feeling I get when Im at the Sonoma Plaza. The shop owners are all so kind and friendly and they carry such fun and unique items. Delicious restaurants all with a unique flair of their own, superb service and incredible wines at the wine tasting rooms makes for an awesome visit to Sonoma wine country.
I never get tired of time spent at the Historic Sonoma Plaza. Highly recommend!

We spent most of our time in Napa. However, our friends wanted us to see Sonoma so we drove over after a visit to Domaine Carneros to see it. I loved the historic plaza area. My friends told me if you like Napa, you will really like Sonoma because it is more laid back and historic. While I did not get to try wineries here, I definitely loved the part of the town. While my wife shopped, I toured the historic area, including the city hall, mission church and historic village. The park was beautiful with several trees in bloom. Again, I wish I had more time but the time I spent definitely sparked my interest.
