Diversity is the key to the town of Sebastopol (pop. 7,379), located at the crossroads of state highways 12 and 116 in western Sonoma County. In this dynamic community, a small-town vibe blends with an international consciousness, creating a sophisticated rural atmosphere.
Officially a self-declared nuclear-free zone, Sebastopol isn’t just populated with sandal-wearing idealists. It has a rich agricultural history, including Luther Burbank's Experiment Farm, where he developed more than 800 varieties of fruits, flowers, vegetables, and grains beginning in the 1880s. It embraces the fine arts, culture, history (West County Museum), the healing arts, fine dining, healthy dining, wine, farming, the environment, sustainable living, outdoor recreation (Laguna de Santa Rosa Wetlands Preserve) and more.
Antique stores abound, making this a great place to go antiquing, for example at the Antique Row. Wander charming downtown Sebastopol and discover the many unique shops featuring crafts, health food, clothing, books, house wares and toys, along with restaurants, pubs, New Age stores, and art galleries. And about a half mile northeast of downtown, visit the shops, tasting rooms and eateries in the park-like setting of the 220,000-square-foot business center known as The Barlow.
