I have always loved to travel. Last year, I got the opportunity to visit Sonoma Valley. Fortunately, one of my friends had convinced me to book at Historical Hotel La Rose, in Santa Rosa. Staying in a historical hotel allowed me to experience the history of Santa Rosa which is well preserved in many period buildings, around courthouse and railroad squares.
I must admit that the center of Santa Rosa is itself a museum where visitors can find plenty of shops, restaurants, attractions and other entertainment. As a gateway to Sonoma valley, almost every corner of the town contains a tour operator. I could also see many historical apartment buildings. Upon my inquiry, it was a surprise that their rents were often 50 percent less than San Francisco. I was also surprosed to find that almost all of these residential buildings were immaculately maintained.
There is also a creek that flows through the city of Santa Rosa. Due to this creek, there is an abundant wildlife including lots of herons and egrets. Also, don't be surprised if you happen to come across rabbits, opossums, foxes and raccoons because the city is located on the border of a wildlife sanctuary. Santa Rosa is home to North Bay Theatre Group, which is known throughout America for providing quality performing and visual arts.
