A trip to Petaluma wouldn't be complete for any gardener without a visit to Cottage Gardens Nursery on the north end of town on Emerald Drive off Petaluma Blvd North. Save some room in the car for unusual plants, sustainably grown veggies and herbs, and great garden art.The grounds are stunning.

And one of our favorite restaurants is Cafe Bella off Lakeville Highway between Frates and McDowell. Fabulous salads and "comfort food".

Best place to catch a ballgame in PTown? Beyond The Glory Sports Bar and Grill at the north end of McDowell. 16 screens... something for everyone!


Coincidence? I think not, check out the add on the page directly opposite the Petaluma blurb...And for all things beautiful I love Tuscan Gardens on the corner of B and Kentucky.


That's you and Michael next summer, once your oldest has fled the nest - hiking away your summer vacation up in his favorite get-away spot in the Northern Hemisphere! Petaluma, Whistler, what more could you ask for?


A chocoholic's visit to Petaluma isn't complete until they visit Viva Cocolat on Petaluma Blvd North at Western Ave. Gourmet chocolates from around, an awesome truffle selection, espresso, desserts, and chocolate fondue! The best hot chocolate and mochas in town.


While you are promoting the Sheraton chain of hotels, how about a nod to the indie Metro, a French style hotel, on the South Boulevard?


I haven't checked the rooms out in the French-style Metro, but it does by local reputation offer an affordable, one-of-a-kind, boutique hotel experience for anyone visiting Sonoma County. Closer to town than the Sheraton, too, so much more gentle on the carbon footprint of tourism for sure. The Metro is located at 508 Petaluma Blvd South. Check out www.metrolodging.com
