Downtown Napa: Something to Wine About





napa.jpg

Napa, CA- Rolling countryside, vineyard covered hills and elegant wineries aren't the only fun places to explore when heading to Napa Wine Country.

Downtown Napa, often overlooked by many visitors is worthy as a singular destination in its own right. This revitalized jewel rests along the banks of the meandering Napa River.

In contrast to the famed Napa Valley, downtown is well suited for those who prefer escaping the confines of the car and exploring on foot. There's plenty to keep you busy, so head for some free parking and get ready to spend the day exploring. (Tip: The 5th Street garage provides excellent access to the Riverfront Promenade.)

Downtown Napa's appeal comes from the combination of characteristics you won't find in every city. Easy walkability, funky shops, unique eats and an excellent blend of both the old and the new. Napa is a fun and easy place to explore. Factor in the exceptional climate, you'll wonder why you haven't been here more often. Naturally, wine takes center stage at many locations and sampling a few sips around town is a treat and an obligatory part of the journey. 

For lengthier stays, Downtown Napa also doubles as the perfect staging location. Acting as a gateway to Napa Valley's abundance, downtown provides a home base for forays deeper into wine country before returning to the accessible amenities of downtown.

A vibrant and growing music scene, a twice-weekly farmers market and a host of outdoor activities are all usually no more than a brief walk. The most challenging part of any Napa visit can be deciding what to do. The options can be overwhelming. If this is your first visit, a little planning will go a long way. Just be sure to leave some time for exploration.

For your next California adventure, consider a visit to Downtown Napa. It's a short ride from Roseville and South Placer County with plenty to see and do. We wish all cities could be this much fun!
