The City of Santa Rosa is the North Bay's premier location for technology and entrepreneurial businesses. As a business and service hub, Santa Rosa is the economic engine that drives the region. Just 55 miles north of San Francisco, you'll find a vibrant city overflowing with all you love about California. Our restaurant business is booming, along with agriculture, high-tech, biomedical, education, environmental and, of course, tourism. Santa Rosans have a deep appreciation for the arts, education, conscientious business development and quality living.
