Born and raised in NAPA... hated it... still do! I go back often to care for elderly parent. I have deep roots in Napa.

I moved to Sonoma County. I HIGHLY recommend it!! Petaluma is the south end of the county, thus more expensive since it is located more for commuting to SF and beyond. I would recommend Healdsburg if you like the ambiance of Yountville. It is pricey however, just like Yountville. However you have the small towm America atmosphere, the beautiful wine country, the Russian River, Lake Sonoma and many more! The ocean is a simple 45 minute drive and you can head up to Lake County or maybe closer ( ) for BLM land to shoot on.

If Healdsburg is out of your $$$, look at Windsor just south of there, North of Santa Rosa. Windsor is a lovely bedroom community with newer homes and neighborhood type schools. ( 2 year schools = awesome! K-1, 2-3, 3-4 etc )The community provided lots of rentals as well as sale homes.

Good luck!
