Please keep in mind that Sonoma County is a popular vacation destination, and often hotels and vacation rentals book up in advance. Plan your trip 3-6 months in advance whenever possible. See our Lodging page for suggestions on places to stay. We hope you may be able to enjoy some of the beauty of the area. There are resources for this on the Lodging page, as well as places to eat out on the Local Dining page.
Temperate year-round, the weather on the Sonoma Coast follows a pattern of maritime fog in the morning which gives way to California sunshine around noon. When inland valleys heat up, the coast remains cool. The weather can be changeable; layered clothing is recommended. The temperatures are significantly warmer in the north and east, the west and south are cooler. Even a few miles can make a difference in temperatures, so plan for change. This is especially important for patients who are temperature sensitive.
