With its rolling hills covered with grapevines, Napa Valley is one of the most romantic destinations in the United States. Apart from its aesthetic beauty, this little piece of heaven is known as wine country, and what better way to celebrate your love than over a glass of wine?
Napa Valley offers a range of experiences. From wine, food, art, and adventure there’s always something to indulge in. Here are a few activities that you can include in your itinerary for your next vacation.
Napa Wine Train
What is a trip to Napa Valley without a tour of the wineries on the wine train? Taking a tour on a vintage train is as romantic as it gets. The Napa Wine Train will take you around the most historic wineries that made Napa famous. This 6-hour train ride is more than a history lesson. You will enjoy scenic views while enjoying gourmet meals and stopping for wine tastings at various wineries.
Tours and Tastings
Speaking of tours, you can spend your days touring and walking through the beautiful valley towns of Napa. The small towns of Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, Calistoga, and St. Helena will help you appreciate the beauty that is the Napa Valley. You can start your tour by having pastries and coffee at the local bakery in Yountville. Later on, head out to Long Meadow Ranch, and find a general store selling the sweetest smelling jams, scented candles, and oils.
For lunch, you can dip down to Copia for cooking and wine tasting classes. If you’ve had too much wine already, you can kick back in the open kitchen and order common American delicacies. Later on, you can visit one of the four taprooms in Downtown Napa and find out how they make their craft beers.
At the end of your day, head on down to St. Helena that has restaurants prioritizing clean eating. You can rest assured that your food is sourced straight from the farm. The food style in these restaurants is family-style with open flame grills being used to cook most of your meat dishes.
If you enjoy art and music, you will enjoy being in Napa. Twenty minutes from Napa, in Mount Veeder, are wineries that showcase different artworks from artists such as Francis Bacon, Gerhard Richter, Robert Motherwell, and more.
You can also detox in Calistoga that hosts several spas in the area. From mud-baths that contain volcanic ash and spas that allow you to choose your own spa concoctions, you will be spoiled for choice. This would be an excellent time to rejuvenate your love with your partner.
Finding lodging in Napa will also not be difficult. From hacienda-style properties to Victorian mansions and family-style hotels, there is a wide range to choose from. Planning out your holiday with all these options in mind can be difficult and time-consuming. Don't spend another second of your efforts by booking your own vacation.
