      Sonoma, California is located directly in the center of what is known as "wine country" on the west coast. This is a great vacation spot for temporary tourists, but also a great place to live for the long term. With several scenic valleys covering the horizon, this region could not get much more beautiful than it already is.

      There are absolutely fantastic restaurants and great vineyards with the freshest wines all around this area. The weather is warm at all times of the year, and rarely presents any rain or thunderstorms. This could be considered an expensive place to live due to the hospitality all around this region. The houses in this region are also very gorgeous and make for a very scenic atmosphere.

      There is also the great Sonoma Raceway where NASCAR comes to race once per year, usually in the summer time if you are interested in an attraction that provides high speed road racing.
