    Flying in for North Bay Python can be a breeze. A bus, train, or cab ride after landing in Santa Rosa, Oakland, or San Francisco, you can be ensconced in your accommodation and gearing up for the conference.

<h2><em>All</em> of the Airports<a name="airports"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>You can get to Petaluma from any of six airports, three of which we recommend, one of which is <em>very</em> convenient if it's an option for you:</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Santa Rosa (STS)</h3>
 

	
 
<p>Charles M. Schulz Sonoma County Airport, in Santa Rosa, is just 25 miles away from the venue and offers the convenience of a small regional airport. With short lines, short walks, Snoopy statues, and the shortest distance from the venue, this is our #1 recommendation.</p>
 

	
 
<p>You can get to and from the airport in about 30 minutes with a <a href="https://sonomacountyairport.org/passengers/ground-transportation/#taxiorshuttle">taxi cab</a>, <a href="https://sonomacountyairport.org/passengers/ground-transportation/#busandtransit">bus</a>, or <a href="https://sonomacountyairport.org/passengers/ground-transportation/#smart">train with a short cab ride</a>. You could <a href="https://sonomacountyairport.org/passengers/ground-transportation/#carrental">rent a car</a>, but you won't need it unless you're planning to explore the North Bay while you're in town.</p>
 

	
 
<p>You can fly into Santa Rosa through many airports, including: Portland (PDX), Los Angeles (LAX), Seattle (SEA), San Diego(SAN), Santa Ana (SNA), Phoenix (PHX), Dallas (DFW), Denver (DEN), and Minneapolis (MSP). You <em>could</em> fly from San Francisco (SFO) if you really wanted to, but we don't recommend it!</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Oaklank (OAK) and San Francisco (SFO)</h3>
 

	
 
<p>The airports in Oakland and San Francisco are about 50 miles away from the venue and have many more connecting flights. Because of their distance from the venue, travel times are very subject to freeway traffic and can range from 60 to 90 minutes. Upon arrival, we recommend taking the <a href="https://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">express bus</a>; it's faster and cheaper than weaving together public transit systems to get here.</p>
 

	
 
<h3>Sacramento (SMF) or San Jose (SJC)</h3>
 
<p>The airports in Sacramento and San Jose are about 85 miles away from the venue and aren't recommended, but are options available to you. You'll probably need to rent a car.</li>
 

	
 
<h3>Petaluma (O69)</h3>
 
<p>If you happen to be a pilot, or be willing to charter a flight, you can flight directly into town through <a href="https://cityofpetaluma.net/pubworks/airport.html">Petaluma Municipal Airport</a>!</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>
 

	
 
<p>Check out our <a href="/attend/hotels">Where to Stay</a> page for more details on hotels and other options, including links to discounted rooms.</p>
 

	
 
<h2>Scheduling Your Visit<a name="scheduling"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>All the official events will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from November 1st to 3rd, so we recommend you arrive Friday afternoon (at the latest) and depart on Sunday evening (at the earliest).</p>
 

	
 
<p>Many people choose to arrive Thursday evening and depart Monday morning, for convenience. Lots of attendees choose to start their visit even earlier, or stay longer, so they have time to explore our landmarks, expansive parkland, and world class hospitality.</p>
 

	
 
<h2>Food and Activities<a name="food-and-activities"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<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. There's a lot to do here and we encourage you to explore while you're here!</p>
 

	
 
<p>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>

<h2>By Car</h2>
 
<h2>How to Get Here<a name="transit"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>If you're driving up, Downtown Petaluma is at exit 472A on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 

	
 
<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</h3>
 

	
 
<h2>By Plane</h2>
 
<p>If you're driving up, downtown Petaluma is at exit 472A on Highway 101, 35 miles north of the Golden Gate Bridge.</p>
 

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

	
 
<h4>Sonoma County Airport (STS) <small>25mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<h2>Lodging and Accommodation<a name="lodging"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<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>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>
 

	
 
<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>Check out our <a href="/attend/hotels">Where to Stay</a> page for more details on hotels and other options, including links to discounted rooms.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>San Francisco International (SFO)/Oakland International (OAK) <small>50mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<h2>Scheduling Your Visit<a name="scheduling"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<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>
 
<p>All the official events will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, from November 1st to 3rd, so we recommend you arrive Friday afternoon (at the latest) and depart on Sunday evening (at the earliest).</p>
 

	
 
<p>Transfers to Petaluma are available through the <a href="http://airportexpressinc.com/schedule.php">Sonoma County Airport Express</a>.</p>
 
<p>Many people choose to arrive Thursday evening and depart Monday morning, for convenience. Lots of attendees choose to start their visit even earlier, or stay longer, so they have time to explore our landmarks, expansive parkland, and world class hospitality.</p>
 

	
 
<h4>San Jose International (SJC)/Sacramento (SMF) <small>85mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<h2>Food and Activities<a name="food-and-activities"></a></h2>
 

	
 
<p>If you're planning on renting a car, San Jose (SJC) or Sacramento (SMF) are both two hours drive away.</p>
 
<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. There's a lot to do here and we encourage you to explore while you're here!</p>
 

	
 
<h4>Petaluma Municipal <small>3mi from venue</small></h4>
 
<p>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 and stay as long as they can! We will offer free childcare for kids from 6 months to 12 years of age during the conference.</p>
