Who says you can’t do wine country with the kids? We say it’s the perfect place because there are so many family friendly and kid friendly things to do. Even some of the wineries have caught on with grape juice tasting for the kids. You may be surprised to find how far we take “kid friendly” in the valley, but we have kids too! We all like to revel in the laid-back hospitality that makes this area so welcoming and so much fun to visit.
A visit to Napa Valley has a lot to offer those traveling with kids. Take a look at these things you can do here as a family:
- Tour the Sonoma Savanna by jeep with SafariWest. Children at least three years old can participate and you can enjoy seeing giraffes, gazelles, zebras, oryx, cape buffalo, and more.
- Conjure memories of Harry Potter when you check out the trees of stone in the Petrified Forest of Calistoga (a California Historical Landmark) where a remarkable collection of petrified trees can be explored.
- Take a wine train tour with the Napa Valley Wine Train which rolls through the valley and lets passengers enjoy the view while being entertained and sampling delicious treats.
The holiday season is a wonderful time to visit Napa Valley. This year, you’ll want to book your trip early to join in on all the revelries, including carolers, parades, tree-lighting, and more. The Annual Calistoga Lighted Tractor Parade is on December 7th and it’s free, fun entertainment for all. Lighting up tractors may not seem like a traditional parade, but here in the Napa Valley, we’re very close to the farming community. We are proud of our local produce and committed to our farmer’s markets so the use of tractors in the Christmas parade seems only fitting.
