Labor Day marks the unofficial end of summer, so it’s not surprising that families want to soak up every last minute of this weekend. Plus, it’s the one holiday that is actually dedicated to not working, so you can kick up your feet and relax without feeling the least bit guilty!
Not sure how you’re going to spend this weekend? Why not plan a getaway to Napa Valley! This way, you don’t have to host anything at your home, and you can enjoy a work-free weekend of fun!
Here are some of the highlights as to what you can do on Labor Day weekend, August 30 – September 1, 2014.
Don’t miss out on the fresh produce at Napa’s farmers markets! On Saturday, you can find an array of field-fresh and sustainably grown produce, food and artisan arts and crafts at Napa Farmers Market. At Calistoga Farmers Market, you’ll find fresh seafood, colorful flowers and unique gift items. Cost is free.
Music Under the Stars
On Saturday, grab your favorite friends and family and gather under the stars for live music at the Old Faithful Geyser of California. The geyser erupts every 10-15 minutes for extra fun and excitement! Bring a picnic dinner and your favorite bottle of wine to round out a fun-filled evening. Cost is $14 adults, $12 seniors (65+) and $8 children.
Grape Stomping at Grgich Hills Estate
It’s not easy finding places where you can actually be involved in grape stomping, but Grgich Hills Estate is one of them. Starting September 1, visitors can kick off their shoes, stomp on grapes and put their stained feet on a t-shirt. You also get to sample three wines. Cost is $30 for stomping, wine sampling and a t-shirt.
Napa Valley Wine Trolley
Hop onto a motorized San Francisco cable car where you’ll visit four different wineries. There are plenty of opportunities to take pictures of historic landmarks, breathtaking scenery and unique artwork around Wine Country. The cable car has a comfortable, open design so you can get a scenic view, and all tours include a catered lunch at Michael Chiarello’s NapaStyle. Cost is $99 per person.
