The Sonoma Valley Visitors Bureau is pleased to announce that in partnership with Sonoma Raceway and Sonoma County Transit, a free shuttle will be running between Sonoma Raceway's 50 Acres campground and the Historic Sonoma Plaza on Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21 during the Toyota/Save Mart 350, NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races.

This shuttle service is a great opportunity for race fans staying at the track to discover the downtown Sonoma's 8-acre plaza surrounded by award-winning restaurants and wine tasting rooms, shops, historical sites and more.  This is also good news for visitors staying in Sonoma area lodging and Sonoma locals attending NASCAR races who can leave their vehicles in town and take the shuttle to the racetrack.

The shuttle will run from 9:30AM to 5:00PM both Friday, June 20 and Saturday, June 21.  The first shuttle departs from the 50-Acre Campground at 9:30 AM, and will depart from that location every half hour with the last shuttle departing at 4:30 PM. 

Shuttles departing from the Sonoma County Transit bus stop on the Sonoma Plaza horseshoe will depart on the hour, the first shuttle departing to the track at 10:00 AM and the last shuttle returning to the track at 5:00 PM.

Celebrate Mom in Sonoma Valley!

Sonoma Valley, Mother's Day, Sonoma Plaza
Mom does a lot for you every single day of the year so why not treat her to a day off in Sonoma Valley.  What better way to say thank you to the most important woman in your life than with wine tasting (or bubbles testing), shopping, brunch and a spa treatment or two.  Several wineries are celebrating mom with special events while restaurants prepare one-of-a-kind menus with mom in mind.  Does your mom prefer exploring the outdoors and getting out into nature?  No worries, we have just the place for that as well.  The Overlook Trail  offers a three-mile hike with views of the entire Valley while Jack London State Park boasts 39 acres that are home to a museum, London’s gravesite and the ruins of his famed Wolf House.  Perhaps pampering is the way to your mom’s heart.  If so pick from three resort spas (MacArthur Place, The Lodge at Sonoma and the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn) or our body care boutique, Body Karma.  Then take a stroll around the Sonoma Plaza and browse unique shops, historic sites and quaint restaurants and tasting rooms. There is something for everyone in Sonoma and that includes Moms everywhere!
