Stopped down town looking for ice cream. Walked the Main Street, enjoying the window shopping and noting the lovely tile work. Not a recommended destination unless you have little to do or need to kill time.

We took the SMART train from San Rafael, and enjoyed walking thru the RR district. Other reviews spot on --- lots of thrift/costume shops to browse thru.

For food at Railroad Square I recommend Jackson’s Bar and Oven...great lunch or dinner. Also, for Thai food, Khoom Lanna is really good as well (with vegetarian options). There are a couple of furniture stores I like, and an antique/collectibles mall, vintage and used clothing...More

OK, it has a lot of thrift shops, but Railroad Square is a swell part of Santa Rosa. Interesting shopkeepers, some good deals at the stores, plus interesting hotel and restaurants.

I love areas that have been rehabbed but keep their historic feel. Railroad Square District is just that; plus lots of good spots to eat!

Lots of thrift type stores. You will find a good selection in them. Lots of tourist here who make coming here a priority on their visits. Good variety of restaurants. All of the people working in the shops are friendly and helpful.

Very charming downtown area, some great shots especially for breakfast and happy hour. But the area is full of homeless people and they are very aggressive.
