Napa Valley: For an Exciting, Adventurous Vacation

Everyone loves a great vacation and is looking for places to visit. One you may have overlooked is things to do Napa Valley. Napa Valley, located in California, has many exciting places to visit and things to do!

If you’re adventurous and not afraid of heights, a hot air balloon ride may be just the thing for you. Napa Valley is a magnificent place to ride a hot air balloon because of the breathtaking views of the rolling vineyards and beautiful Mount Saint Helena, Mayacamas Mountains and the Vaca Range ridgeline. On a clear day, you can even see the San Francisco skyline and some of the peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

If you love wine, taking a Napa Valley Wine Country Tour is something you won’t want to miss. You will get to see the Golden Gate Bridge as you go across in your comfortable luxury coach and venture into the rolling hills of Northern California’s wine country. You will experience wine tastings in three wineries, learn the Napa Valley and Sonoma wine history, as well as learn about the processes and techniques of wine-making. For lunch, you will stop at one of two delightful places then do some shopping for knickknacks to take home with you.

If you would prefer, instead of riding in a luxury coach, you can be more adventurous in your explorations by taking a ride on a hybrid bike. You will meet with a guide to show you the wine country. He will tell you many interesting facts along the way. For lunch, he will take you to a picnic spot where you will enjoy artisan meats, cheeses from local farms, fresh salads and delectable desserts. Next, your guide will lead you to Napa River, where you’ll get off your bike and get on a kayak, then paddle down the river and view more rolling hills, beautiful vineyards and grand winery estates. At the end of your kayak journey, you will leave with many pleasant memories.
