Rohnert Park turns 50 | PressDemocrat.com

So the city of Rohnert Park (in Sonoma County), which is about 45 minutes north of the Golden Gate Bridge, is turning 50 years old. I live about 15 minutes north of it, but rarely ever actually stop there for whatever reason. We always drive through it to get to SF or Marin County. So me rarely ever venturing into it much, what are your thoughts about this little "Bedroom community?" Many people hate it, thinking it is bland, and some think it is downright ghetto (and apparently a large trailer park community). Some think it's plain and "vanilla," but also a nice place to raise a family. It's also a college town, home to Sonoma State, a small university with a mainly wealthy student body.

However there's one thing that Rohnert Park has that many other cities don't have: a WAL-MART! And not just any Wal-Mart, but one with a McDonald's in it! Okay... so it isn't that unique to have that around.

But really, what are your thoughts about it, if you have ever had any experiences there? Is it pretty much the same place as Novato or San Rafael in terms of living?
