Imagine a city that provides the opportunity to sip on fine wine, find the largest collection of Charlie Brown and Peanuts related art work in the world, and go on an African themed safari. If this sounds like a place you might be interested in, look no further than Santa Rosa, California. Located in Sonoma, the heart of California wine country, Santa Rosa seemingly has it all. Great locally grown food, awesome wine, and lots of culture. We strongly suggest including Santa Rosa in your travel plans the next time you find yourself in sunny California. Also, don’t forget that Wheelers can easily take care of all of you Santa Rosa wheelchair van rentals needs during your stay. Without further adieu, please see below for the top 3 activities to do in Santa Rosa, California.

Dive into the Wine Culture

Wine here is not simply a beverage, it’s a way of life. Sonoma is known for producing some of the best tasting wine in the world. There is a plethora of beautiful wineries to tour throughout this stunning area of California. We suggest scheduling a tour and making a day out of it. One of our favorite places has to be St. Francis Winery and Vineyards, which provides visitors the opportunity to dine on delicious food with exquisite wine pairing for a very reasonable price.

Join the Peanuts Gang

Santa Rosa is home to the Charles M. Schulz Museum which contains lots of art, murals, and exhibits of the Charlie Brown creator’s work. If you are a fan of the Peanuts Gang and want to learn about the history of how it was created, you should definitely pay this museum a visit. You can easily spend hours getting lost in the memories and philosophy of the great Charles M. Schulz.

Go on a Safari

Safari West, located in the heart of Sonoma County, provides visitors with the opportunity to experience a real safari without making the trip to Africa. Giraffes, zebras, and lemurs are just some of the animals you will encounter during your journey. This is a great activity for families, bird lovers, and adventurers alike.

We hope this guide has provided you with some great ideas on how to fully enjoy a trip to Santa Rosa, California. As a reminder, Wheelers can make your Santa Rosa wheelchair van rentals process a piece of cake during your stay so you can focus on the important things, like sampling delicious wine.

Once you’re on the plane, the situation doesn’t get much better. Leg space seems to shrink each year. And most airlines no longer feed their passengers.

However, airlines will usually accept homemade sandwiches, fruit, and crackers through the security checks. You can also purchase something at one of the food places in the airport. You’ll have to purchase water or other drinks at the airport after going through the security check.

Once you’ve gotten to your seat and put your seat belt on, you can close your eyes and picture yourself at the end of your flight when that warm sun hits your face and starts to melt away everything that has come before. Now it’s tanned legs, surf and sand, seafood and all around good times traveling in your Wheelers Accessible Van Rental van.
