  • Interesting. Before moving here I had no idea about Luther Burbank. He used to hang around with Edison and the other big giant brains of the time. He came up with many varieties of plants and hybrids that we use today for food and also for flowers pretty cool stuff. His garden is most impressive
  • A real hidden gem in Santa Rosa. We had a very knowledgeable tour guide and learned a lot. It is free to walk in and see the guardens, though they accept donations. Also it is maintained by volunteers which is amazing!
  • Nicely maintained grounds, which are free and open to the public. The other stuff requires an admission and tour, but still neat to look at.
  • It is overwhelmingly beautiful here. Somehow, despite its location, it's​ pristine condition has remained undamaged. There is a guided tour that can be accessed by calling a posted number anytime of the day that gives history and information on current projects in the garden. Wonderful fountains and pathways. It is a little tricky to park, but well worth it.
  • Nuce place to go look and learn about Luther Burbank and great place to relax

Where to stay in Santa Rosa

The old claim that Santa Rosa is "Where Everything Comes Together" remains undeniably true, at least when it comes to its accommodations. 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. You can choose from among luxury hotels, vacation rental homes, and inns, all within minutes of downtown. If you prefer to rough it in wine country, choose one of the area's rustic campgrounds.
