MAIN STREET MEETS RIVER TOWN

Visiting Petaluma’s historic downtown area is reason enough to plan a trip. It takes little imagination to picture what life was like here back in the 1800s, as many of Petaluma’s original buildings still line the streets and remain full of life. Stately banks, towering brick mills, and rustic feed stores now house boutique clothing shops, gift stores, and antique shops. The Westside streets and alleys hold claim to superb restaurants, art galleries, and a wide range of lively pubs and music venues.

Outdoor enthusiasts visit Petaluma year-round for both road and mountain cycling tours, hiking along the gorgeous Sonoma Coast, and participating in paddle board races on the Petaluma River. The outdoor adventures in Sonoma County are endless, and there’s no better basecamp than Petaluma.

A mash-up of circa 1870’s iron buildings front old river warehouses, along with a retired mill that serves as office space for growing tech, natural food, and creative companies. Boutiques selling kitchenware, designer clothing, books, antiques and art complement the downtown. The historic Petaluma downtown is also where you go for movies, live music and acclaimed restaurants. Mini districts such as Kentucky Street, Petaluma Blvd., American Alley, Foundry Wharf, and 4th Street thrive along the walkable streets and vintage buildings.

HIGH END OFFICE SPACE MEETS OPEN SPACE

Anchored by the Petaluma Marina and the Sheraton Hotel, the Marina District contains some of Petaluma’s most successful businesses. Shollenberger Park connects the Marina to trails that extend southward through miles of scenic river marshland. Look out for birdwatchers! Other amenities in the district include upscale condominiums and apartments that round out Petaluma’s housing options.

Steve Cohn is an excellent realtor. When my wife and I were buying our first home he was eager to help. He knows and understands the process of buying a home as well as the market very well. Steve and the RE/MAX Elite Partners were responsive and helped us out the whole way through. I will surely use him in the future and have recommended him to a number of people already.

-Melissa & Steve

It was a pleasure to work with Victoria to sell our first home. She was very knowledgeable and helped us through the hole processes. She made sure we understood what was happening and what we needed to do as sellers. If we were staying in the area we would have helped her find our new home as well. She and The Elite Partners were able to refer us to another great agent when we purchased our next home. I highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell your home.
