Fourth of July is right around the corner, and you may be wondering where to spend this fun-filled summer holiday. Our recommendation: Napa Valley! Wine Country is filled with nonstop festivals, events, wine tastings and fireworks that will give everyone in your group something to remember!
Here are FOUR great reasons why you should spend the Fourth of July in Napa Valley. (Like you needed any convincing!)
1. Restaurants and Wineries Galore
If you don’t want to spend your summer days walking around festivals, then head over to any of the restaurants or wineries that are open on the Fourth, which include most. You can enjoy an interesting and unique wine tour, walk through the vineyards and sample new wine selections. With fresh produce from the local farms, you can also enjoy tasty summer menus from many of the local restaurants.
2. Festivals and Celebrates that Sizzle
There’s something about summer that says ‘festivals.’ So, if you’re someone who enjoys listening to live music, tasting samples of food and enjoying wine samples under the tent, then you’ll find endless festivals and celebrations to enjoy during Fourth of July weekend. One of our favorite events includes the Napa Valley County Fair and Fireworks in Calistoga. Here you can find food, wine, live music, rides, attractions and an impressive fireworks show.
3. Luxury Lodging for a Pleasant Night’s Rest
We can understand that you may not want to drive home after a long day in Napa Valley. Fortunately, there are plenty of affordable luxury hotels in the area that will make your Fourth of July weekend safe and fun!

4. Board the Napa Valley Wine Train
Why should you board the Wine Train on the holiday weekend? Two reasons. First, you get to indulge in a gourmet meal on a comfy train. Second, you get to watch the fireworks from a front row seat. The Napa Valley Wine Train is always fun, but it gets an added dose of originality when you get to ride, dine and watch the fireworks all at once.
