Sonoma has so many fun activities outside of the wine tasting. Featured here is the Sonoma Lavender Barn (open two weekends during summer) and the Sonoma Hot Air Balloon Classic. 

Pro Tip for the Lavender Barn: Get there early

↠ doors open at noon, so you probably want to get there around 11:15 - 11:30 AM and park on the main street before turning into the Lavender Barn and walk up. There will be crowds, there will be selfie sticks, and it will be wonderful. Also, you can pick the lavender! Bushels run from $7 - $9.
