No. 8 Sonoma, CA

10 of 21

This wine-country town also made the top 10 for town squares, and its adobe-lined Plaza is where you’ll find Sonoma’s 4th of July parade with marching bands—followed by a carnival and topped off with fireworks. No surprise, the town also scores highly for its wine-friendly bars; head for the tasting rooms at Charles Creek Vineyard and Adobe Road Winery, right on the Plaza. Readers also approved of the local coffee from sources like Sunflower Caffe Espresso & Wine Bar, located inside a historic home.
