Fetters Hot Springs-Agua Caliente is a census-designated place (CDP) in Sonoma Valley, Sonoma County, California, in the United States. As of the 2010 census, the CDP population was 4,144.[4] The name Agua Caliente translates into English, from Spanish, as hot water, referring to the hot springs historically found in the area.[5]

Agua Caliente originated as a land grant 10 miles (16 km) long on the east side of Sonoma Creek. George and Emma Fetters opened the Fetters Hot Springs resort in 1908.[6] The two communities are generally thought of as separate from one another, though they are adjacent. Fetters Hot Springs is immediately to the north of Boyes Hot Springs, and the three communities are often grouped together as "the Springs" area of Sonoma Valley.
