Petaluma is located in Sonoma County's wine country, just north of San Francisco along Highway 101. With its close proximity to the wineries, the spectacular Sonoma coastline, Point Reyes National Seashore, and the seaside villages of Bodega Bay and Jenner-by-the Sea, Petaluma is a perfect spot to base your northern California vacation! But, Petaluma has much to offer just on its own! The Petaluma River and Historic Downtown are at the center of the city. Being one of the few northern California cities to escape damage from the 1906 earthquake, Petaluma retains much of its Victorian architecture. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1995, and contains 30 antique shops, art galleries and specialty shops. You'll find everything from custom jewelry and clothing, antiques, home and garden accessories, and one of a kind gifts. Buy fresh produce at the Petaluma Farm Trails and Farmer's Market. And the Petaluma Village Premium Outlet Stores features 60 factory direct outlet stores, where you can find savings at 25 to 65 percent! Special events to watch for in Petaluma include the Butter & Egg Days Parade, Victorian Holiday Events, and the Great Petaluma Quilt Show. Petaluma has small town charm combined with lots of exciting attractions, perfect for the whole family!

Petaluma Weather & Climate

The Northern California coast, just north of San Francisco, is a mild climate region of warm days and cool nights. Right along the coast, summers are cool and foggy and the further inland you go, the sunnier and warmer it gets. Coastal low clouds and fog usually burns off by early afternoon. There is little or no rain May through September, with the rainy season beginning in late October or November. Flooding is a problem in winter when rains are heavy within a short period of time. There is an occasional light frost in the area, but generally temperatures stay above the freezing mark. Fall is usually the sunniest season along the northern California coast without the fog of summer or the clouds and rain of winter.
