There are a lot of fun things to do in Napa Valley, not just serious wine tasting. Aside from that, the world-famous wine region in California is not just for adults, but also for the kids and the whole family!
Lovers of nature will particularly have plenty to choose from, things to see and experience in the Napa Valley. Rent a bike and cycle through the wine country or hike the rolling hills and see the spectacular vistas of the valley. You can also enjoy fishing, swimming, kayaking, horseback riding, and so much more.
Art lovers will find a great time here in Napa Valley. Visit numerous art galleries, as well as a few wineries that also serve as art galleries. Broaden your cultural knowledge by attending local art and movie festivals, signing up for art and acting workshops, immersing yourself in different cultures by attending several cultural events. There are events to look forward to throughout the year.
You don’t have to worry if your kids go with you to the Napa Valley. They will find lots of things to enjoy. Look out for kid-friendly places and activities which will keep your young ones busy while you’re sipping wine. You can even take them to wineries which also welcome children and families. Examples of these are Castelo di Amorosa, V. Sattui Winery, Sterling Vineyards, and Frog’s Leap. Kids will have a fun time feeding the chickens at the barn, exploring the beautiful interiors, and eating kid-friendly meals and fresh grape juice.
Riding a hot air balloon sounds intimidating at first, but once you’re up there in the sky, you can’t help but to get overwhelmed… in a good way. You’ll have an exceptional bird’s-eye view of the neat, undulating rows of vineyards, the rolling hills, and the valleys being greeted by the warm rays of the sunrise. Pretend that you’re some ancient explorer as you “survey” the beautiful Napa landscape. This experience of riding the hot air balloon is an experience like no other. You cannot see the vast expanse of the Napa Valley in any other way — not even from standing at the hilltop winery!
