Whether for a day trip, a weekend, or a weeklong escape from the San Francisco Bay area or anywhere else, Sonoma Valley offers a host of fun, rewarding, and exciting activities only a distance away.
While Sonoma Valley happens to be 30-minutes closer and easier to access than its famous neighbor, Napa Valley, the area offers comparable world-class wine tasting, superb dining and entertainment, and the full spectrum of outdoor adventures.
Many experts, by the way, refer to Sonoma Valley as the “real Wine Country” since it was, in fact, the birthplace of the California wine industry.
Sonoma Valley Has It All
Easy to get to, Sonoma is the perfect getaway destination. The area features an attractive historic downtown area, gourmet and farm-to-table restaurants, luxury spas, excellent hotels and B&Bs, and parks and trails for everyone.
Hundreds of welcoming wineries dot the region’s landscape, always welcoming visitors to sample their award-winning wines.
Also, one of the favorite ways to kick off an adventure in beautiful Sonoma Valley is with an unforgettable hot air balloon excursion with Sonoma Ballooning.
Imagine the photo ops and beautiful memories of you and a loved one or friends floating gracefully above Sonoma Wine Country’s breathtaking scenery, consisting of the area’s vineyards, communities, and landmarks, framed by a mountainous backdrop to the east.

A Sonoma Valley balloon adventure begins early in the morning with a rendezvous at Sonoma Skypark in Sonoma. Here you will check-in and receive your pre-flight details from your experienced pilot.
Next, you will observe the flight preparations and the balloon inflation performed by the licensed pilot and the experienced associates of Sonoma Ballooning. When all is ready, you will board, and the balloon will begin its gentle ascent.
Approximately one hour later, after gently descending and landing at the destination, passengers will disembark and enjoy a champagne toast.
Since the Sonoma ballooning adventure begins early in the morning, visitors to Sonoma Valley will still have an entire afternoon and evening to enjoy other experiences, like wine tasting, sightseeing, shopping, and more.
