Santa Rosa is a Northern California city in Sonoma County and is made up of many North Bay Area regions, surrounded on all sides by nature. To the east, Santa Rosa stretches from its heart in Downtown to the Valley of the Moon’s Oakmont and finally to the home of Jack London, the Sonoma Valley. Also in eastern Santa Rosa you will find Bennett Valley with Annadel State Park, and Rincon Valley which is home to Spring Lake, our family’s favorite place to walk. For those with a taste for life’s finer things Fountain Grove’s luxurious hilltop homes provide breathtaking views of all of Sonoma County, the Mayacamas Mountains, and up to the geothermal Geysers like Old Faithful. Downtown Santa Rosa intersects with the Santa Rosa Creek, which is home to abundant fish and wildlife like great blue herons. Deer and wild turkeys are commonly spotted in and around Downtown Santa Rosa Real Estate.
Our family loves to bike or hike the Santa Rosa Creek trail as it has flowing water year-round and really does have more birds and wildlife than other trails, even bobcats. Plus, it makes a beautiful easy commute by bike through the Laguna de Santa Rosa from Sebastopol and West Sonoma County to Downtown Santa Rosa. The Santa Rosa Creek flows past Roseland to Santa Rosa’s western border, the Laguna De Santa Rosa. To the North lies Larkfield-Wikiup, the world-class Mayacamas, and the wonderfully convenient Charles M. Shultz Sonoma County Airport. Santa Rosa’s most famous resident, the world-renowned experimental horticulturalist Luther Burbank said, “I firmly believe, from what I have seen, that this is the chosen spot of all this earth as far as Nature is concerned.” Fly, bike, hike, or crawl, but get your family to Santa Rosa and Sonoma County, California.
