Influencers Do Napa

Downtown Napa is firmly keeping its reputation as one of the hottest wine country destinations. From world-class restaurants, amazing wine, luxurious spas and a charming riverfront, Napa offers everything you need for a stellar vacation.

Here are some of the favorite things to do from recent Downtown Napa visitors:

Sacramento-based interior designer Shavonda Gardner loved DoNapa’s unique wine tasting experiences: “There are tons of exclusive boutique wines you can only find in downtown and they are all within walking distance to one another.”

No trip to Napa would be complete without a wine tasting or two, amiright?! It’s probably the main reason people visit the valley, and our trip certainly included a few. Unlike a traditional winery setting tasting, @downtownnapa offers a unique wine tasting experience which includes lots of harder to find boutique wines, and they are all within walking distance. If you are looking for a unique Napa tasting experience make sure you get a @downtownnapa wine tasting card which gets you 1/2 price tastings and additional discounts and specials!! We made sure to make a special stop at @browndowntownnapa and are still talking about how much we loved it! It’s located in the heart of downtown and If you’re ever in Napa I highly recommend a stop there. The vibe is ultra chic and urban, and the wine flights were delicious. Plus the fact that @brownestate is the first and only black owned estate winery in Napa, and that its LGBT operated made it even more of a must visit for us. We are definitely looking forward to a return visit. Hope everyone is off to a great one. #donapa #napanow #napavalleyspirit #navondadoesnapa

Fashion and lifestyle blogger Alicia Lund said a stroll on a foggy morning through downtown over the bridge “made us feel as though we had escaped somewhere else entirely. It almost has a European feel from that vantage.”


Travel content creator Shem Hooda had “the most romantic little getaway” to Napa and “spent the weekend eating and exploring to our hearts’ content!”


Cupcake queen and creator of Best Friends for Frosting Melissa Johnson describes Downtown Napa as “the ultimate foodie destination. Whether you’re looking for fine dining or a quick snack, you’ll find it here.”


Award-winning travel writer Anne Lowrey pointed out that staying in Downtown Napa overnight allows you to walk everywhere and takes away the worry about designating a driver. “It’s a relaxing way to roam from one eatery to another, stopping for a stroll by the river or to browse some art in between.”
