Even though Sonoma is known for its wine offerings, you’ll find plenty of things to do with kids there. Sonoma transforms into Africa on the Safari West tour, which includes an authentic safari jeep ride through the wildlife preserve ending in an African-style oasis. Your kids will gawk at 600 animals such as giraffes and zebras on this three-hour-long ride in what’s called the Sonoma Serengeti.
Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang were conjured up in Sonoma, so it makes sense that the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Snoopy Gallery’s Gift Shop stand there today. Schulz called Sonoma home for 40 years, but he opened the museum to showcase his legendary comics-turned-movies and merchandise in 2002 following the strip’s 50th anniversary. For any kids who are familiar with the loveable beagle and his charming, self-deprecating owner Charlie Brown, this cartoon museum and gift shop will be a special treat.
