Close to the city, and to the country, Petaluma's central location in the Bay Area mean the best of both worlds. This is a great destination for those nature lovers, looking for an escape from the busy city streets, where they can immerse themselves in the surrounding nature. It makes the perfect base for those who want to head to Napa or Somona county wineries. There are thick redwood forests you can wander through, listening to the woodland sounds as you breathe in the fresh air or head to the Petaluma River where you can enjoy kayaking and other water activities. Petaluma is the ideal destination for anyone who wants to enjoy the peacefulness, and the beauty which goes hand-in-hand with nature.
