You’ve probably heard the news that Napa is the Happiest City in the U.S. via Twitter and we couldn’t be . . . happier! If you’ve never experienced Napa or are looking to visit again, you’ll soon see what all the tweets are about.
What makes Napa so great? To start, there are over 10 million tweets saying that Napa is the happiest city in the U.S., 70 restaurants all within walking distance, over 17 art galleries, 41 picturesque lodging properties, and 13,500 wine glasses washed and polished per year in the average wine tasting room. In addition to these fantastic numbers, Downtown Napa is also home to three major entertainment venues: SILO’S, Napa Valley Opera House and Uptown Theatre.
SILO’S, is Napa’s premiere music room located in the heart of Downtown Napa at the Historic Napa Mill, adjacent to the Napa River Inn, making it easy for you see a show and retire to your nearby room. Bar Manager Keith Stansberry features fine wines carefully selected from the best of Napa Valley wineries along with local micro-brewery draft beer from Napa Smith Brewery.
