Great place to live

I moved here from San Francisco over 40 years ago to escape the crappy summers. This town has everything I want in a smaller community. 2 golf courses, several swimming pools, several performing arts centers, including the Green Music Center. Also many restaurants, stores, and a multiplex cinema. The best part of living here is the perfect weather year around plus a beautiful university near by. And don’t forget a short drive to the coast, wineries, and of course the City(SF).

Rolling Hills of Rohnert Park, CA

I have lived in Rohnert Park, CA for several years while I was attending college at Sonoma State University. The area truly is picturesque, as it sits in the rolling hills between beautiful, secluded Northern California beaches and the rolling hills of Napa Valley. The area is mostly known as a college town, although a lot of people also come to the area for retirement and to live a more laid back lifestyle. Things move a bit slower in Rohnert Park, but that does not mean that it is not a great place to live.

The people that live in the area are typically upstanding individuals and the neighborhoods are truly a place that you would be able to raise your kids without having to worry about hardly anything. The restaurants in this area are stunning and there is no question that some of the best wineries on the entire planet reside in the close vicinity of Rohnert Park. There is not too much nightlife in the area, unless you are a college student that is looking to hang out with some friends at a house party on a Friday or Saturday night. The landscape in this area is truly something to behold and if you love being outdoors, there are few places that are as spectacular and relatively untouched as Rohnert Park.

If you want to live in a serene area that boasts a thriving agricultural industry centered on his wine, which has an incredibly low crime rate and is generally loved through and through by its residents, you may want to consider moving to the beautiful city of Rohnert Park, California. You might also catch some Hollywood celebrities in this area, as it is a favorite place for a lot of stars to step away from the mainstream media, while still providing luxurious amenities.
