Go on a Bikes & Sights Scavenger Hunt in Downtown Napa

Downtown Napa offers a different perspective on wine country. The city is also a great outdoor destination that you can easily, and safely, explore by bike or foot to enjoy the fresh air. If you need another reason to get outside, we’ve got a fun activity to make it even more entertaining. This fall, challenge yourself to our new Bikes & Sights Scavenger Hunt for a chance to win a prize!

Spoiler alert, we’ll be sharing a few extra hints in this blog to help you figure out the clues even faster!

Bike This Way

First up is securing a bike. If you don’t own a bike or don’t feel like bringing one from home, Downtown Napa has you covered! There are plenty of places you can rent a bike like Enjoy Napa Valley or Napa River Velo. Plus, some lodging properties offer bikes complimentary for guests. There are even self-serve bike rental kiosks located at Oxbow Public Market and the Historic Napa Mill.

Of course, if you prefer to walk, that’s an option too. Downtown Napa is wine country’s most walkable destination, so all locations on the Bikes & Sights Scavenger Hunt are close enough to access easily on foot.

Rules to Follow

Once you’ve got the wheels, keep your eyes on the prize! Downtown Napa explorers who follow the clues to find various attractions can enter for a chance to win a $100 gift card at a downtown restaurant of choice!
