Discover Napa Valley: Things To Do In Napa Valley
We invite you to explore Napa Valley’s spectacular wineries, resorts, and world-famous dining! The breathtaking views and genuine hospitality will beckon you to stay in this premier travel destination.
The Napa Valley is home to an incredible range of diverse climates, elevations, and soils…making it ideal for growing many varieties of grapes and producing wines that are among the best in the world. Your travels through this scenic area are sure to awaken all the senses. With vine-covered mountain ranges and meadows filled with wildflowers, the valley transports you to another moment in time.
The Napa Valley has developed a reputation for pricey, limited edition wines that are held in high esteem by wine collectors. The most popular of these exquisite wines are Cabernet Sauvignon and various Bordeaux style blends. Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc also have strong followers. Napa Valley is also known for its vibrancy and its hospitable vintners and growers who are more than happy to share their wisdom and wine with you. Whether you are seeking trendy, old-world, or collector wines, Napa Valley has a varietal for just about every palate.
To see the varying terrains and visit the area’s best-known wineries, you can travel through the main road (Highway 29) or through its parallel route, the Silverado Trail. Most of Napa Valley’s larger commercial wineries and restaurants can be found off Highway 29, a scenic drive with many attractions. The Silverado Trail, in contrast, runs outside of town and is less traveled, yet offers many wineries and gorgeous views. Take caution however, as locals and visitors alike tend to drive very fast along this backcountry road.
To see Napa Valley’s very best views, and more distinguished boutique winery estates, you’ll need to get off the beaten path. Even better, hire a private tour service with an expert local guide to help you find exclusive mountainside estates, valley crossroad connections, and truly hidden gems.
