    West County Museum

    by WulfstanTraveller Updated Apr 4, 2011

    This is Sebastopol's little local museum. As with many of the museums in Sonoma County (like Santa Rosa and Petaluma), the building it's in is itself historic and interesting. It is in the old Petaluma and Santa Rosa Railroad station on South Main Street. This electric line once ran through the towns that gave it its name, plus Sebastopol and the surrounding countryside for most of the first half of the 20th century. It brought goods and people between the areas and in Petaluma linked up with the company's own steamboats that sailed from Petaluma to San Francisco. Unfortunately, almost nothing of the line remains in Petaluma so Sebastopol's station, and the nearby stone Powerhouse (now a restaurant/micro-brewery) are two of the most significant remnants of the line (the other is the Mission Revival main station and car shed in downtown Santa Rosa - see my tip on that page).

    Joe Rodota Trail

    by WulfstanTraveller Written Jul 2, 2008

    This is a bicycle and pedestrian path that goes from downtown Sebastopol to downtown Santa Rosa. It is several miles, paved, and, except for a small portion crossing a couple streets in Santa Rosa, is off the road. Its Sebastopol end is near the West County Museum in southern downtown. It ends in Santa Rosa near Railroad Sqaure by linking with the also very long Prince Memorial Greenway, another bike and pedestrian path along Santa Rosa Creek. This is a great way to see the surrpounding countryside and visit both downtowns without driving.

    See also my Creek Paths/Prince Memorial Greenway tip on my Santa Rosa page.

    Wine Tasting

    by RockyDaniels Written Mar 4, 2008

    Sebastopol is one of many Sonoma County starting points for a day of wine tasting. Within a few miles of downtown are some great tasting rooms: Hanna Winery, Marimar, Hartford just to name a few. Working your way north of Sebastopol to West Side Road to Dry Creek Road is a long day of sightseeing and wine tasting that leaves you in Healdsburg.

    The process and abuse of battering apples! Watch as a church lady precisely cuts apple slices, slowly batters each individual piece in anticipation of frying.
