Napa Valley Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Napa Valley, California - CA, USA)

Rather resembling a patchwork quilt of greens, the vineyards of Napa Valley are certainly in good supply, being found between Napa and the small town of Sonoma, north of San Francisco. The region serves as America's principal collection of vineyards and wineries, which now number over 300 in total - so plenty of choice for potential visitors!

Within the Wine Country there are three main areas for exploration. Busy Highway US-29 is lined with some of the most popular wineries, which are best visited Monday to Friday, since weekends can be extremely hectic. Also of note is the Silverado Trail and Highway US-121, both of which tend to be a little less crowded at peak times. Head to downtown Napa and you will find some trendy eateries, former mansions now operating as stylish guesthouses, and wine-tasting opportunities galore.
