Flowing in and around Napa, the Napa River offers respite from the hustle and bustle of downtown and scenery that you won’t find among the vineyards or the urban streets. Whether you want to stroll along the Napa River Walk or explore by kayak or paddleboard to see the sites from the water, the Napa River is one of the true jewels of the local landscape.

Taking a bike ride on local trails is one of the most fun ways to see the open spaces of Napa. With easy trail access from downtown, the Napa Valley Vine Trail is a favorite among locals and visitors alike. The trail is currently 12.5 miles long, connecting south Napa to Yountville, and plans are underway to complete a 47-mile stretch of trail through scenic wine country.

We would be remiss not to admire the most famous wine country landscape of all: Napa’s vineyards. Many travelers rave over the beauty of the expansive vineyards at The Meritage Resort & Spa, which produce grapes for Trinitas Cellars. The Meritage offers tours of its vineyards – a great way to take a closer look at Napa’s most precious commodity.

Locals never get tired of spotting hot air balloons in their backyards, and visitors will be mesmerized with the view of Napa from sky heights. Embrace adventure with a hot air balloon excursion, and take in aerial views of vineyards and open space galore. Napa Valley Drifters within the city limits is a great spot to launch.

Westwood Hills Park, accessible from Browns Valley Road, an extension of First Street in Napa, is said to offer some of the best views of the city. Reconnect with nature with a hike through the rolling hills, and explore wine country from a whole new perspective! Be sure to pack a picnic, too – there are a few tables in the park to enjoy some wine, cheese and scenery.
