Even with the few days of recent rain, it sure is starting to feel a lot more like spring than winter. The temperatures are rising and the trees and flowers are starting to wake up after a short winter. At the Cottage Inn & Spa, and Sonoma for that matter, weekend crowds are increasing, while weekdays remain rather quiet. It is a great time to visit Sonoma!

It is easy to stay busy here. Every corner has a winery willing to fill your glass or a restaurant offering fresh food. For individuals looking for other activities, the Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau has a great event calendar highlighting local art, music and culinary events. Starting March 10th, Sonoma Restaurant Week gives guests the opportunity to try some of the valley’s best restaurants at a discounted price. Starting April 2nd, the Sonoma International Film Festival takes over the town, offering world-class cinema and events around Sonoma’s plaza. It is an event that is not to be missed!
