Sonoma placed #8 in the national survey.
The magazine commented: “The surrounding wine country makes this bucolic town a no-brainer for romance — with the added couples-friendly enticements of dreamy hotels (such as the rambling Spanish Mission-style Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa) and a noted lack of kids. The foodie factor runs high, too, thanks to renowned restaurants (such as French-country The Girl & the Fig) and top-notch farmers’ markets, like the Sonoma Valley Certified Farmers’ Market on Fridays. Readers also voted Sonoma into the top 10 for having quirky locals, a plus on any memorable weekend getaway.”
Topping the list was St. Simons, Georgia. The only other West Coast town to make the list was San Luis Obispo, at #5.
