Never did get to walk the whole plaza. One could definitely get lots of great food and wine tasting right in plaza BUT driving less than 12 miles out you can experience the whole wine production etc.

So many things to do here and it is not big. Many wine stores and restaurants around the plaza, also a barracks museum very interesting to visit and go back in time. Many cute shops to explore too!

Nice shops and tasting rooms. Family run stores that are more accessible than higher end store found in Healdsburg. Nice Irish bar and hotels on the square. An original mission on the square.

Just a neat little step off of the square. Nicely tucked away, this little avenue provides you access to some boutique shops and great tasting rooms. Have fun exploring.

This was a great time to be in Sonoma Plaza with all the holiday decorations. One can wonder about the plaza, poking in and out of various alleys each with unique shops, art, restaurants and wine tasting options.

Takes about an hour to casually walk about shops and do a 360 stroll. Must be a dozen or more tasting rooms and numerous eating places. Art work and jewelry and clothing is a matter of taste. Three hour parking on the square.

The heart of Sonoma is the Plaza and it is a great place to enjoy. One can stroll through the grounds, take a picnic basket and use the tables or sit on the grass, or buy a yummy slice of pizza at Mary’s across the...More

I think the people above me have answered the question. Airporter bus & the variety of wine tour buses. Of course the taxi services, maybe even Uber/Lyft can help you out.
