Santa Rosa is small enough so that you can leave the city limits in 10 minutes. There is a road that you don't know about unless you're local. It's called Bennett Valley Rd. It goes from Santa Rosa to Glen Ellen. Rolling hills, Matanzas Creek Winery (which grows Lavendar), little roads where you can sit and view the scenery. Take a drive there one day soon. At this time of year, it's green. You can thank me later.
