Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Spring Lake Regional Park in Santa Rosa

The Pacific Ocean and the Russian River, mountains and redwood forests...just try telling a local that Sonoma County isn't the most beautiful place on earth. Don't worry. We won't bite your head off. Instead we'll just politely smile and say, "Glad you think so. Please go live somewhere else." And then we'll go about our merry way and enjoy the great bounty that Mother Nature has lain before our feet.
