Sonoma Raceway is an accessibility dream. A $70 million Modernization Plan resulted in an impressive property, including accessible parking, shuttles, tunnels, elevators, and ramps to get people with mobility challenges around this huge property. A fixture in Sonoma Valley for almost 50 years, first as Sears Point Raceway then Infineon Raceway, this is the Sonoma home for NASCAR, IndyCar, NHRA Drag Racing, and the Sonoma Historic Motorsports Festival.
Location, location, location. El Dorado Hotel is a boutique 27 room hotel at the heart of the historic Sonoma Plaza, on the corner of First St West and West Spain St, with tasting rooms and shops just steps away. El Dorado Kitchen is one of the best restaurants in town, and dominates the first floor of this historic 1843 adobe building. Both the Hotel and the Kitchen are fully modernized and accessible.
Ramekins Culinary School, Special Events, and Inn is a delightful mixture of all three. The culinary school is nationally acclaimed but the European six room inn perched atop the cooking school is somewhat of a best kept secret. Even less well known is that one of those 6 rooms is an accessible room with a roll-in shower. Cooking classes not required! (more…)

Sonoma Creek Inn is an affordable but charming alternative to pricier Wine Country hotels. One of the 16 rooms in this boutique inn is accessible (Room 14 queen). It even has a roll-in shower!

The 18th Annual Sonoma International Film Festival (SIFF) is right around the corner, March 25-29, 2015. This is a magical time here, when independent filmmakers and their films bring us Hollywood excitement and glamour. We call it Sonomawood, and it’s all accessible! (more…)
Locals love to hang out at the Community Cafe for breakfast and lunch, but tourists are welcome too! And it’s one of my favorites. It’s a great place to stop for breakfast before a day of wine tasting. They even have box lunches for a Wine Country picnic you can order 24 hours in advance!
