Explore Vibrant Downtown Napa

By Touring and Tasting

At the foot of the Napa Valley, charming Downtown Napa has transformed into a culinary and entertainment destination that should not be missed.

Back in 1847, the town of Napa was founded at the uppermost point of the Napa River to act as a hub for trade and transportation. Today, Downtown Napa has become a hub of a different kind, bringing world-class wine, food, and culture into one vibrant place. It seems there’s always something exciting happening in Downtown Napa: the opening of a new tasting room, a new art exhibit, or a new restaurant featuring another great chef. Rest assured, Downtown Napa is not a tourist trap. It’s genuine and real. In fact, this urban spot has become a gathering place for locals to meet, hang out, and savor all the good things Napa Valley has to offer. So next time, when in Napa Valley, do as the Napans do, and “do” Downtown Napa.
