Napa Valley is a flat valley about 30 miles long and more than a mile wide. It’s positioned between two mountainous ranges that perfectly define the backdrop of the beauty of the valley – especially in fall. Enjoying the fall colors is an ideal way to mark the changing of the seasons and Napa Valley is highly popular with anyone who likes food, wine, and scenic beauty.
Napa Valley in the fall is more than perfect because the crowds have gone and the temperatures are a little cooler. As the grapes are picked, the vines begin to go dormant and the leaves turn bright red and cold. In many years, the colors easily rival the fall foliage of New England.
Autumn is an ideal time to visit the beautiful Napa Valley. It is busy enough without being over-packed. Outdoor dining is a must and many restaurants have heated patios to chase away any unexpected chill.

Some great fall activities in Napa Valley to enjoy include a visit to the Stanly Lane Pumpkin Patch. Come on down (and bring the kids) for a day of outdoor family fun. Ride a tractor, find yourself in the corn maze, chase the piggies, and climb the hay pyramid. Oh yes, and find your perfect pumpkin too! Admission is free, so this is a budget-friendly option for your fall break.
Fall is also a time when the chefs change their menus to feature seasonal specialties. You can find fine dining to tapas to exceptional barbeque – everything is available in Napa Valley and the chefs work with local farmers so you know the ingredients are exceptional. Some of our favorites include:
- Angele Restaurant and Bar – a true locals hangout with serious foodie credentials. Everything on the menu is delicious, but the delightful setting makes this one of the most romantic restaurants in the downtown area.
- The Bounty Hunter – with animal heads on the walls and giant smokers out back, there’s no doubt as to what you’re going to enjoy at this local’s favorite. Try the house wine because it’s a private label and anything but typical ‘house wine’ quality.
- Celadon – try sitting in front of the fireplace with a plate of delicious mussels and you’ll never want to leave. Everything at Celadon is incredible and the menu features global comfort food.
