Kick off Your Best Travel Year Ever with a Trip to Napa

While some may use New Year’s resolutions as motivation to cut things out or make life improvements – maybe no sugar in January or hitting the gym more often – we think the New Year is a perfect time to focus on those #travelgoals. Why not resolve to make this a wondrous travel year, starting with a trip to Napa?

If you’ve never been to Napa, this is your chance to explore all the great experiences the city has to offer. If you have visited, how about trying a totally different itinerary than you experienced last time? Here are a few suggestions to make your 2018 trip to Napa one you’ll never forget:

  • Check out the breweries – Napa is obviously famous for its world-class wine, but why not visit Napa to taste some beer, too? As you can see, the craft brew scene is thriving in the city, and this up-and-coming industry is a great way to discover a lesser-known side of Napa.
  • Do Napa’s historic walking tour – There is so much to love about Napa, and the history of the area helps visitors appreciate the city as it is today even more. Swing by the Napa Valley Welcome Center for a map of the city and take a self-guided tour of the historic sites and charming neighborhoods.
  • Try the global cuisine – While wine country fare and locally sourced ingredients are all the rage (and for good reason), the City of Napa also has an amazing selection of restaurants highlighting flavors from around the globe. Try the finest Japanese dining in the region at Kenzo, enjoy Spanish tapas at Zuzu, or savor a lamb burger at Tarla Mediterranean Grill.
  • Enjoy the breathtaking views of Napa’s picturesque landscape from the Napa Valley Wine Train. One of Napa’s most distinctive restaurants, the Napa Valley Wine Train offers an authentic, memorable experience that echoes the glory days of train travel! Experience a divine four-course meal while aboard exquisitely restored vintage rail cars.
  • Make it a memorable wine tasting experience – With more than 20 tasting rooms within a few walkable blocks, the Downtown Napa tasting experience already stands out – but take it one step further and check out some of these unique tasting experiences, such as blind wine tasting at the Napa General Store. You’ll be masked before you begin your sipping adventure, and guided through a tasting that will awaken your sense like never before!
