Relax on the balcony overlooking the Napa River ebbing and flowing at the Napa River Inn or kick your feet up by the rooftop fire pits of the Andaz Napa.

Whether you are on Main Street or a few blocks over, walking to and from your accommodations is encouraged and who wouldn’t love to take a load off here?

Surround yourself with Romantic Realism, 20th century classical paintings and ethereal sculptures at Quent Cordair Fine Art gallery. Mix and mingle with private and corporate collectors while you take in the works of art from award-winning painters and sculptors of international renown and emerging artists of unique vision and accomplishment.

Grab a table at Celadon for an award-winning dining experience featuring dishes from around the world. Whether you are in the mood for a Mediterranean, Asian or an American style dish, Celadon’s menu will bounce you around the globe. Its outdoor dining patio is the perfect cozy location to enjoy a meal for two or a party with a group.

A pro-California tasting room, CADET is a great place to sit and sip the best California wines and beers on the market today. Staying true to its namesake, CADET – which also means “trainee” – believes in exploring wines and beers with its guests and celebrating exceptional producers in California (and beyond). CADET is also open late-nights on the weekends so plan this as the last stop and enjoy!

Don’t just spend one day exploring Napa on foot! With so much to do and see, you can plan an entire weekend of walking, sipping and dining. For more information on planning a walkable itinerary and lodging visit DoNapa.com.
