5 of the Most Fun Things to Do in Napa

Are you planning a trip to Napa California this year?

Napa Valley is one of Northern California’s premier vacation destinations. It attracts nearly 4 million visitors every year to its renowned wineries, gorgeous natural scenery, and quaint towns. It makes for the perfect getaway for young couples, families, and single travelers alike.

If you’re looking to have a bit of fun on vacation in Napa, you’ve come to the right place. In this post, we’re going to tell you 5 of the best things to do in Napa Valley. Get ready to sit back and enjoy your trip while we take care of the planning for you.

1. Take Wine Tours

You can’t really talk about Napa County without discussing the wineries. Napa is home to quite literally hundreds of wineries, so you’ll be hard-pressed to fit them all in during one visit. A wine tour takes about 90 minutes, so you could feasibly (and safely) fit 2-3 in over the course of a day.

If an experience is what you’re after, try booking yourself a ticket on the full-day Wine Train through Napa Valley. It’s a 36-mile trek that stops at wineries all along the way, which takes the element of driving out of the equation.

2. Biking and Hiking

As we said, Napa is full of beautiful scenery that you absolutely have to explore. If you’re into hiking, there are countless paths that you could spend hours traversing. Take the edge off first by ordering from and picking up some cannabis for the walk – it’s legal in California.

Napa is an area full of hills and low mountains, so it’s perfect mountain biking terrain as well. You can either bring your own bike and do a self-guided tour or take a specialized tour through the area with a local expert.

3. Taking in Local Art

Most people think that California’s art scene is contained in the big cities, but Napa is actually home to some really cool installations. The Napa Art Walk, in particular, showcases sculptures from renowned American and International artists in an idyllic outdoor setting.

In Napa’s Carneros region, you’ll find the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, which is located on a 217-acre former vineyard. In addition to the permanent collection, there are contemporary exhibitions for local artists and lots of programming for children.

4. Fly Fishing

When you travel to Napa, you know you’re getting wine and gorgeous scenery. One of the best ways to enjoy the latter is by going on a guided fly fishing excursion for the day. 

If you’ve never been fly fishing before, there aren’t many better spots to do it than on one of Napa’s many rivers. Relax all day and learn how to tie flies and cast with a trained professional.

5. Fine Dining

Last, but not least, Napa Valley’s towns are home to some of the finest dining in Northern California. You’ll find Michelin star fine dining, picnic-worthy delis, and bakeries full of treats and coffee to get your morning started.
