You might think a place known for its wineries and vineyards isn’t the right place to take children, but you’d be wrong. There are so many great things for kids to enjoy in Napa Valley that a summer without a trip to Napa is just not complete. Get the kids in the car and join us in Napa Valley before school starts.
Here are some of the best kid-friendly things to do in Napa Valley:
- Skyline Wilderness Park – nearly a thousand acres of sports, animals, nature, gardens, hiking, and more at the best price of all – free! Bring a picnic basket and enjoy an entire day of nature study, fishing, hiking. The views from the ridge are impressive too.
- Playground Fantastico – a great result from a collaborative community effort, this is a one-of-a-kind playground complete with a castle theme and knee-high concrete river. Again, the price on this one is just right – free!
- Napa Valley Wine Train – a relaxing three-hour round trip train journey through one of the world’s most famous valleys to the quaint village of St. Helena and back, the Napa Valley Wine Train is good clean fun for everyone of all ages – a real ride back in time.
- Scientopia Discovery Center – a children’s discovery center designed to encourage a child’s love of science, math, art and music through hands-on exhibits, creative play areas, and fun-filled events. With imaginative playspaces and recycled arts and crafts areas, Scientopia is a great way to spend a few hours indoors.
When you stay in downtown Napa, the whole family can walk from location to location and get some fresh air and sunshine.
Stay with us at the Napa Valley Hotel and Suites and you’ll be in close range (often within walking distance) of all the best that Napa Valley has to offer.
One of the best things about visiting Napa is that you quickly realize you may just have stepped back in time – to a friendly time when people walked the sidewalks in the evenings and chatted on street corners. It’s a small town but a famous, historical one, so you have lots of big comfortable parks to explore and picnic in, and historical sites and museums to visit.
There are also lots of great places to dine – some of the best dining in the world is in Napa Valley – and you know that the ingredients will be locally grown, fresh, and often organic so you don’t have to worry about what’s going into the kids tummies. Of course, we also have some truly wonderful breakfast places for the little folks who get up early and start their day hungry!
Call us at Napa Valley Hotel and Suites to reserve your room and you’ll be within walking distance of the Main Street Downtown Napa where you can stroll and enjoy your time with the kids. Call 707-226-1871 for more details and pricing.
