It’s your birthday. Or maybe it’s your loved one’s birthday. Even though the excitement of the holidays is sure to be enjoyed, it’s easy to overlook a birthday at this time of the year. But, it doesn’t have to be this way. Why not set time aside to celebrate your birthday by planning a short visit to Wine Country? It’s an excellent way to ensure that you get some much deserved attention that you often miss out on thanks to the commotion of the holidays.
Here are a few reasons why visiting Napa Valley in the fall is awesome:
● Smaller crowds
● More discounts
● Heartier meals
● Locally grown ingredients
● Cabernet season
● Abundance of red wine selections
● Beautiful foliage
● Educational samplings and tastings
● Holiday activities, like ice skating, lights and parades
● Decorated Christmas trees
● Unique items sold at boutique stores
● Intimate setting
Since the peak of visitor season is over, you’re more likely to get added attention while dining, attending wine tastings and even staying at a hotel. Be sure to check out the seasonal packages that are offered from Napa Valley Hotel and Suites. The Thanksgiving and Christmas packages, for instance, are wonderful for birthdays and include a deluxe room with a jacuzzi and king-sized bed. You can also enjoy dinner for two for $50.
Since the weather doesn’t get too cold in Napa Valley, you can continue enjoying the great outdoors during the fall as well. Hiking and biking are activities that are enjoyed throughout the year, and you can consider other visitor favorites like hot air balloon rides or a ride on the Napa Valley Wine Train. If you stay in the Downtown Napa Valley area, you can also take part in the seasonal activities like lighted parades, ice skating and tree lightings.
If you’re looking for something special for your loved one’s birthday, skip the standard box of chocolate and spring for a weekend in Wine Country. With personalized attention, holiday events and the delight of hearty meals and red wine, there are endless ways to celebrate another year of good health!
