Often used as a locale for motion picture filming, the landscape beauty of redwood forests, lakes and vineyards are among the reasons why Santa Rosa has made the Best Cities to Live list for four consecutive years. Large shopping malls, three healthcare systems, several colleges and easy access to the Pacific Ocean add to the quality of life, and Santa Rosa enjoys a thriving downtown area.
