    Boldly go where many have gone before: you can commute to North Bay Python each day, though you'll probably have to drive. Public transit is an option, but it's not great. You won't be able to spend as much time with fellow attendees, but you'll still have a great time!

<p>If you're driving up, Downtown Petaluma is at exit 472A on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 
<h2>How to Get Here<a name="transit"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>All parking is free in Petaluma, however near the Mystic, street-level parking is time-limited. All-day parking is available at street level west of 5th St (towards 6th St), and at the the undercover garages at <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Keller+Street+Parking+Garage">Keller St</a> and at Theatre Square. Both garages are in short walking distance of the Mystic.</p>
 
<p>How you get here depends, naturally, on where you're coming from. Broadly, your options are: <a href="/go/fly">flying</a>, cab rides, public transit, ride sharing apps, or renting a car.</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Public Transit</h3>
 

	
 
<h2>By Public Transit</h2>
 

	
 
<p>Public transit to Petaluma is currently not great.</p>
 

	
 
<p>You can take the <a href="http://goldengatetransit.org/schedules/current/route_101.php">101 bus operated by Golden Gate Transit</a> from downtown San Francisco, or south from Santa Rosa. Depending on sponsorship, we hope to run a free shuttle with BART and Caltrain connections for people from further out of town.</p>

<p><a href="https://sonomamarintrain.org">SMART</a>, the new train service that runs along the 101 corridor, recently started operations. SMART is not suitable for getting to North Bay Python if you travel on weekends, as the first train leaves after proceedings start. SMART may be a better option than taking the bus between San Rafael and Petaluma if you travel up on weekdays.</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Driving and Carpooling</h3>
 

	
 
<h2>By Plane</h2>
 

	
 
<p>Petaluma is within driving distance of all Bay Area Airports, and each airport has varying levels of public transit links to Petaluma.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>Sonoma County Airport (STS) <small>25mi from venue</small></h4>
 

	
 
<p>STS is 30 minutes out of Petaluma, and has nonstop flights to most major west coast cities on Alaska, United, and American, as well as Minneapolis and Las Vegas on Sun Country.</p>
 

	
 
<p>On weekdays and weekend afternoons, <a href="https://sonomamarintrain.org">SMART train</a> runs from STS to Downtown Petaluma Station, 1/4mi away from the North Bay Python venue. STS is also serviced by the <a href="http://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">Sonoma County Airport Express</a> bus.</p>
 
<p>If you're driving up, downtown Petaluma is at exit 472A on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>San Francisco International (SFO)/Oakland International (OAK) <small>50mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<p>All parking is free in Petaluma, however near the Mystic, street-level parking is time-limited. All-day parking is available at street level west of 5th St (towards 6th St), and at the the undercover garages at Theatre Square and at <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Keller+Street+Parking+Garage">Keller St</a>. Both garages are in short walking distance of the Mystic.</p>
 

	
 
<p>If you can't make it to STS, you can also try San Francisco (SFO) or Oakland (OAK) international airports. These have many more flights than STS, but are twice the distance away, and are subject to more highway traffic between the airport and Petaluma.</p>
 
<h2>Scheduling Your Visit<a name="scheduling"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>Transfers to Petaluma are available through the <a href="http://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">Sonoma County Airport Express</a>.</p>
 
<p>All the official events will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from November 1st to 3rd. On Friday, we'll only have events in the evening. On Saturday and Sunday, events will run morning through evening, with the core conference going from 10:00am to 6:00pm.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>San Jose International (SJC)/Sacramento (SMF) <small>85mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<p>If you live in the North Bay, we encourage you to join us for events all three days. If you live further afield, you may want to skip Friday and only join us on Saturday and Sunday.</p>
 

	
 
<p>If you're planning on renting a car, San Jose (SJC) or Sacramento (SMF) are both two hours drive away.</p>
 
<h2>Food and Activities<a name="food-and-activities"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<h4>Petaluma Municipal <small>3mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<p>Petaluma is right at the intersection of Sonoma, Napa, and Marin Counties. This three county region, which makes up the North Bay, is famous for its parkland, agriculture, fine food, wine, beer, and spirits. We've prepared a <a href="/food">food guide</a> which will help you find good eats in Petaluma, but if you're sticking around beyond the conference, you'll want to check out your favorite food or restaurant guide.</p>
 

	
 
<p>If you happen to have an aircraft of your own, Petaluma Municipal Airport is 3 miles down the road.</p>
 
<p>From family-friendly hikes to museums, wine tours to wind swept beaches, and lots of kid-friendly attractions, we encourage folks to bring their families along! We will offer free childcare for kids from 6 months to 12 years of age during the conference.</p>

<h2>From Airport to Petaluma<a name="transit"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>How you get to Petaluma from the airport depends, naturally, on which airport you're flying into. Per airport details are provided above, but broadly your options are: cab rides, express shuttles, public transit, ride sharing apps, or renting a car.</p>
 

	
 
<p>Depending on which airport you use, you'll be in town within 30 to 90 minutes. If you need to park a car, take note: all parking is free in Petaluma, however street-level praking is time-limited near the venue. All-day parking is available at street level west of 5th Street (towards 6th Street), and at the garages at <a href="https://www.google.com/maps/place/Keller+Street+Parking+Garage">Keller St</a> and at Theatre Square. Both garages are in short walking distance of the venue.</p>

<h2>Lodging and Accommodation<a name="lodging"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>You'll probably want to stay at one of the hotels in Petaluma, but there are options nearby in Rohnert Park, or in Sonoma Valley if you'd like an extra dose of scenery. If you're feeling adventurous, you could even stay out on the coast in Bodega Bay or up in Santa Rosa. But staying in Petaluma near the venue means you'll have a very walkable weekend; you won't need to worry about driving or getting rides at all!</p>

    You'll enjoy North Bay Python more if you stay in town! Staying in a hotel within walking distance from the venue, and near dozens of great restaurants, makes it much easier to meet other attendees and get that much more sleep every morning.
