Historic Landmarks In and Around Napa

Most people traveling to Napa think of wineries, restaurants, and resort hotels; but the Napa Valley area is home to several incredible historic landmarks worth visiting as well. Rich with history and culture, the area is ripe with attractions for history buffs and the inquisitive mind.

Bale Mill

Located in St. Helena, Bale Mill is located in Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park. The grist mill is one of only 2 water-driven mills that still remains intact west of the Mississippi. Established and built in 1846, the mill and nearby granary were built with local woods and once served as the social hub of activity in the Napa Valley area. The mill closed to the public in 2011 due to a lack of funding but has reopened on the weekends. Beginning in 2016, the mill will be allowed to sell flour as a means of fundraising for maintenance costs.

In our last series of Themes for a Wine Country Visit, we discussed some of the most common themes that visitors use to plan their trips to Napa Valley, including girls’ getaways, guys’ getaways, culinary adventures and romantic weekends. These aren’t the only themes you can enjoy, though. Below are a few more of our favorites, and be sure to check out the packages and special accommodations from Napa Valley Hotel and Suites.

Outdoor Lover

If you love being outdoors, plan a getaway that is built entirely outside, something that is possible in Napa Valley. There are nature preserves, waterfalls, wine caves, tall redwood trees and so much more to explore. Biking is a well loved activity, especially as traffic builds up on Hwy 29 and you can actually make better time on bike or foot. Don’t forget some of the more unique outdoor activities you can take part in, such as balloon rides, air sports and water sports.
