Welcome to Petaluma
Welcome to Petaluma Petaluma is located in Sonoma County's Wine Country just 39 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Centrally located on Highway 101 and the east/west artery Highway 116, Petaluma is an ideal headquarters for exploring Sonoma County's 140 wineries, the dramatic Sonoma Coastline, Point Reyes National Seashore and California's redwoods. All only a short jaunt from Petaluma. The Petaluma River is the heart of the city. The historic downtown flanks the river and lends itself to the authentic Victorian charm of the city. To the east are the city's newer neighborhoods and shopping centers. Surrounding the city, dairy ranches and hayfields provide the much-appreciated open space, which rises to hills on both sides of the valley.
