Got a young (or not-so-young) train enthusiast in your family? Take them to Sonoma ’s own Train Town (20264 Broadway, Hwy. 12, Sonoma, www.traintown.com , June–Sept. daily 10 a.m.–5 p.m., Sept.–May Fri.–Sun. only, $4.25).
Ride the 15-inch scale railroad that winds through the park’s 10 cool forested acres, take a spin on the roller coaster or the Ferris wheel, or climb the clock tower for a magnificent view of the park and beyond.
