1. Day Trips
We're never far from a good day trip here in Sonoma County so grab your friends and pile into the car for a day at the beach or river and enjoy our beautiful home!
2. Shop Local, Be Local
Sonoma County is full of little towns that have tons of independent shops that you can support! Sebastopol is great for vintage shopping, Sonoma has beautiful art galleries and Downtown Santa Rosa has lots of new restaurants for you to try. Don't be afraid to pick a town and just spend some time exploring.
3. Seasonal Fun
When Fall comes around you're going to want to visit one of the local pumpkin patches for an afternoon of pumpkin picking and carving. When holiday time hits, Crane Melon Barn on Petaluma Hill Road hosts a holiday market that is sure to get you in the giving mood!
4. Live Music
Sonoma State is lucky enough to be home to one of the nation's premiere live music venues, the Green Music Center so take advantage of your student discount to see some of the world's best musicians at work. If you want to head off-campus there are plenty of restaurants and other venues that frequently have live music nights or you can head to a venue like The Phoenix for a show!
