Great place, dating is horrible though- especially over 50! Not alot of pickings in a such a small area... you will be living next to the couple of their ex's- if that is cool! They hey, enjoy!

My wife and I moved to Sonoma County from Los Angeles based on the vibe of the people, sense of community and the nature. We love the trees and hillsides... there is literally something in the air here (besides the smell of the farms on really hot days) that we are so attracted to. People are very friendly and open to chatting with one another. Little bars, restaurants, cafes, wineries, farmers markets and festivals are EVERYWHERE and often feature live music. Farm-fresh meats and veggies are common place, even in the smaller cafes. It's not uncommon to find locals who are 3rd or 4th generation Petalumans. There is a reason those folks never left ;^)

Somehow I forgot to mention the incredible beer that is made locally. Laguitas is right in Petaluma and many other great breweries very close by.

Well, it all depends on what you are looking for! But if you are looking for lots of activities check out our local newspaper for Sonoma County, http://www.pressdemocrat.com Although Petaluma is a wonderful town and great place to live, I might also recommend further north where there are more wineries and events at wineries, so check out some of the concerts and outdoor events throughout the county. If you're thinking of buying a place, there are many nice condo communities. Feel free to drop me an email for a list of some nice communities in the county. Best, Terry
