Welcome to Santa Rosa, where everything comes together: wine country and farm country, redwood forests and rivers, lakes and ocean. Just 55 miles north of San Francisco, Santa Rosa is a vibrant city that overflows with all you love about California, including dog–friendly accommodations, nearby wineries, events and activities to suit every lifestyle.
Your first stop when visiting Santa Rosa should be the California Welcome Center in Railroad Square, where you’ll see a statue of Santa Rosa’s most famous dog, “Peanuts” creator Charles Schulz’s Snoopy, and receive a dog bone for your beloved family member.
Dog–friendly accommodations in the immediate vicinity include more than three dozen hotels, motels, inns, lodges, cottages, vacation home rentals and campgrounds that cater to people traveling with their four–legged friends. Dozens of dog–friendly wineries are also nearby, as are outdoor restaurants, off–leash dog parks and state and regional parks that welcome canines. Santa Rosa is the gateway to your Sonoma Country dog–friendly vacation.
