    Favorite thing: Petaluma Adobe State Historic Park showcases Rancho Petaluma, the main residence of General Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo. Vallejo was one of the most powerful men in the area between 1834 and 1846. From here Vallejo ran his cattle, hide and tallow business, raised sheep, bred horses, and grew numerous crops.

    Inside there is authentic furniture and a number of other artifacts depicting life at this ranch.

    There are museum displays and exhibits depicting Vallejo's life and his impact on the area history.

    Fondest memory: I am a history buff so I enjoyed learning about Vallejo.
