Where Everything Comes Together

Located less than an hour's drive north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa serves as a convenient hub for travelers on their way to the world-famous Napa Valley wine country. Rich in history and culture, Santa Rosa became known internationally in the 1940s and 1950s, when celebrated director Alfred Hitchcock used the city for several of his movies. Today, the city of just over 170,000 allows visitors a chance to discover the best of what this part of California has to offer--from its redwood forests and rivers, to its celebrated wineries and scenic coastal roads. Drop by Santa Rosa's compact downtown, which offers several places to taste and purchase the region's wines and microbrews. The Railroad Square district pays tribute to the town's rail heritage, showcasing early-1900s architecture and revamping warehouses and factories to accommodate shops, restaurants, and offices. "Peanuts" creator Charles Shultz called the city home for more than three decades, which is why you'll find a research center for cartooning here. When using our United States tour itinerary app to make an itinerary online, Santa Rosa holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.

Although you can always stay in San Francisco, just an hour to the south, Santa Rosa offers plenty of lodging options to suit every traveler's budget.
