Guy Time

There’s plenty to do in Petaluma besides play solitaire on your phone while you’re waiting for the women in your life to check out every antique store and art gallery in downtown Petaluma.

Play a round of golf; there are two public golf courses; tour a brewery, and of course, sample their product. And in Petaluma, antiques aren’t just for the gals. The very cool Military Antiques Museum is next to the country’s largest retail military shop. It’s a place you’ll want to tell your friends about back home.
