About Santa Rosa, CA Real Estate

City conveniences, natural beauty, and striking views.
 
The main city of Northern California’s wine country is a refuge for those with an appreciation for the arts, nature, and a bustling nightlife scene, all less than an hour from the shores of the Pacific Ocean. Santa Rosa is home to a historic, walkable, tree-lined entertainment district on Fourth Street, and a never-ending stream of entertainment options.
 
Rich in Native history, the city was largely closed off to outsiders until the 1800s. The community grew steadily at first, then exploded in the 1950s. Over the years, many more have discovered this gem of the California wine country and decided to make their own home sweet home within Santa Rosa’s rolling hills, in the company of live music performances, theatrical productions, symphony orchestras, and some of California’s most expansive national and state parks.

What to Love

  • Close proximity to both urban amenities and beautiful scenery
  • Vibrant arts and cultural scene
  • Iconic 4th Street is home to shopping, dining, entertainment venues, and bars
  • A variety of stunning Santa Rosa houses for sale to choose from

Local Lifestyle - Living in Santa Rosa, CA

The vibrant urban heart of Sonoma County‘s wine country is a cultural oasis where both locals and visitors like to enjoy live music, theatrical performances, and upscale cuisine, without sacrificing access to more quiet recreational options. The rolling hills on the outskirts of Santa Rosa play host to beautiful golf courses, regional and state parks, and extensive preserves. Santa Rosa isn’t all wine though - craft breweries, hot air balloons, and the nearby Petrified Forest are just a few other iconic activities to experience in this well-balanced treasure of a community.

Dining, Entertainment, and Shopping

The cultural epicenter of the county is in no shortage of dining establishments for every occasion. Of course, wine reigns supreme here, but there is so much more to discover around every corner.
 
Northern California boasts some of the best Asian cuisine in the nation and Santa Rosa is no exception. SEA Thai Bistro is a colorful spot for fragrant classics, new fusions, and a rainbowed assortment of cocktails. Pad Thai, peanut noodles, and curries are popular menu items, all of which pair well with a selection from their lengthy wine list.
 
American classics prepared with the freshest Northern California ingredients is the specialty of The Spinster Sisters. A spacious “backyard” is a festive spot to enjoy brunch, kimchi deviled eggs, pork belly, and a frequently changing menu of other creative offerings under twinkling string lights.
 
The fragrant wines of the Sonoma Valley can be enjoyed at Willi’s Wine Bar, a San Francisco Chronicle Bay Area Top 100 Restaurant for the past several years. A cozy, warm setting is the backdrop for goat cheese fritters, curried crab tacos, pork belly potstickers, and other mouthwatering creations adorned with regional California flair.
 
Although Sonoma County is best-known for its expansive wine scene, the local breweries are not to be overlooked. Russian River Brewing Company, Iron Ox Brewing Company, Third Street Aleworks, and Bear Republic Brewing are a few top local choices, all of which also offer an elevated pub-style menu.

Things to Do In Santa Rosa

One of the best places to enjoy the panoramic views of California wine country is from above, via one of Wine Country Balloons’ hot air balloon rides. For over 35 years, guests have enjoyed spectacular views from balloons of all sizes.
 
The Luther Burbank Home and Gardens is another beautiful spot to take in the scenery. Seasonal blooms, scavenger hunts, and an informative museum are open year-round for all to enjoy.
 
Just north of town, Safari West is a 400-acre wildlife preserve and African-style safari with overnight lodging options available. The “Sonoma Serengeti” is home to antelope, cheetahs, African cranes, lemurs, and colorful birds.
 
Taylor Mountain Regional Park and Open Space Preserve is a well-known hilltop, known for peaceful views of the city and beyond. The park boasts 1,100 acres of rolling hills, playgrounds, disc golf, walking trails, and many other outdoor attractions.
