A One-Day Adventure Guide for Napa Valley
Napa Valley is a place you can explore for an entire week, weekend, or even a day-long getaway.
Regardless of why you are headed into wine country, plan your itinerary just right to get the most out of that one-day visit.
Here are some ways to squeeze in plenty of action, and of course great wine:
- Start with a Well-Planned Morning: The Oxbow District sits along the Napa River and Oxbow Preserve. It is a 13-acre park that is perfect for the foodie visiting Napa. You can eat at Model Bakery, walk through the Oxbow Public Market, and stop at the Oxbow Cheese and Wine Merchant for excellent pairings.
- Middle of the Day Festivities: Tour the Historic Mill on the opposite side of the Napa River, talk a walk along the Riverfront Center and find a café on First Street, like Bounty Hunter. Here you will get a delicious burger paired with a Napa Valley wine. If you prefer to fill your lunchtime with wine tasting, stop in at one of the many tasting rooms speckled along First Street and throughout downtown.
- Spend the Afternoon Soaking up Art: Kick off the evening by going through the local art galleries, and drop in for a guided tour of di Rosa’s Gatehouse Gallery.
- Evening in Style: To finish your day of Napa Valley adventuring, find a local eatery featuring the finest chefs in wine country. Craving French cuisine? La Toque is perfect for French fine food. La Taberna and Zuzu offer tapas, and Oenotri is ideal for Italian.
- Night Life and Entertainment: Once the sun goes down, do not assume that Napa shuts down for the night. Instead, take advantage of the nightlife in the area by visiting Blue Note, a venue that is a spinoff of the New York venue and inside the Napa Valley Opera House. This jazz club hosts nightly acts and plenty of great drinks.
