What neighborhoods in SantaRosa are good for eating out?
With its authentic old-town ambience, the centrally located Railroad Square Historic District has been deemed "Santa Ana's Restaurant and Antique Row". This charming neighborhood features live theater and other entertainment venues, as well as some fabulous wine bars, and of course the area's esteemed restaurants. Check out local favorite Syrah, where they use fresh, organic, local Sonoma cuisine to inspire their seasonally changing menu. This sophisticated joint serves up delectably refined comfort food, but is perhaps best known for the extensive wine selection and knack for selecting the perfect glass of wine to complement your meal.
Why should I move to Santa Rosa?
Santa Rosa is a historic residential neighborhood located in the beautiful California wine country. The town is best known for its mild climate and undisturbed natural beauty. In addition to the town's picturesque wineries and vineyards, many parks are nearby including the Jack London State Historic Park, Annadel State Park, and the Armstrong Redwoods State Reserve. Just an hour from San Francisco, but with an exciting culture and nightlife all its own, Santa Ana features a lively downtown with unique shops, world-class restaurants, chic nightclubs, and live theater venues. The city's vivacious arts and entertainment scene includes such venues as the Summer Repertory Theater, the Santa Rosa Symphony, the 6th Street Playhouse, the Sonoma County Museum, and countless art galleries. Moreover, ranked #185 on Forbes Magazines' 2007 list of the 200 Best Places for Businesses and Careers, many Santa Rosa residents will find employment with major local employers including several government agencies, Kaiser Permanente and AT&T.
How is the school system in Santa Rosa?
The public education system of Santa Rosa falls under multiple school districts. However, the quality of education really runs the gamut. The Santa Rosa City School District, for example, consists of eleven elementary schools, five middle schools, and five high schools. Maria Carrillo High, Montgomery High, and Santa Rosa High have all received favorable reviews as public high schools. There are also three colleges and various private schools in Santa Rosa.
Are there museums in Santa Rosa or nearby?
Yes, Santa Rosa is home to a host of museums. The Charles M. Schulz Museum, for example, is dedicated to the works of Charles Schulz, creator of the Peanuts comic strip. The Pacific Coast Air Museum, on the other hand, is dedicated to promoting and preserving aviation history, and 30 American military, propeller, and jet aircraft from various wars number among its collection. Santa Rosa is also home to the Sonoma County Museum, the California Northwestern Railway Museum, the Rare Rock Mosaic Museum, and the California Indian Museum & Cultural Center.
Is Santa Rosa a family friendly town?
It depends on what you consider to be family-friendly. For many parents, two primary factors are low crime rates and high-quality public education. Santa Rosa's crime rate is lower than the average when compared to other communities of similar population size, so it passes the test on that account. As far as education is concerned, it runs the gamut, and public schools in California don't have a very good reputation. However, Santa Rosa High School does, with 50 percent of its student body made up of students who come from outside the school's attendance boundaries.
