I have always enjoyed this area, for most of my adult life anyway. Fun to bring the family and nibble our way around. Window shopping that most times ends in actual shopping.

Quaint area of Santa Rosa, with some nice, small, boutique shops, and good restaurants. Make sure to watch where you park, as tickets are on the radar, so don't ignore time! Expensive if you don't pay attention-meter readers will!

Was visiting near by and we walked over to Railroad Square. What a great little spot to have lunch, do a little window shopping, and enjoy some great coffee. We really enjoyed sipping lattes at Aroma Roasters and listening to live music. What a treat.
