Tourists from all over the map are familiar with Sonoma County's many attractions — the climate, the scenery, the culture — but the locals also know the advantages of living here.
And sometimes they savor the simple pleasures the most.
When we asked readers to tell us about their favorite things to do in the summertime in Sonoma County, we got some very short but emphatic answers:
"Head for the beaches!"
"Chillin' on the Russian River!"
"Barbecue with friends! Cold beers and music!"
"Crabbing and shore fishing!"
"Entertaining on my terrace!"
"Bicycle and hike!"
