So, what will be happening in Napa Valley on Labor Day weekend?
Hike the Napa Valley Trails
Hiking the mountain ranges, exploring the many tree-lined creeks, and picnicking by the beautiful lakes of Napa Valley is always in style. A family outing filled with fresh air, sunshine, and fantastic scenery is the perfect way to escape to spend quality time with your loved ones. Napa Valley also has State Parks and well-defined trails for hikers of all skill levels. You will enjoy viewing the majestic morning balloon rides as they float gracefully above the Valley floor.
Tour a Working Napa Farm at Connelly Ranch
Always a delightful outing for the entire family, a tour of the Connelly Ranch is designed to teach young people about nature and the workings of a real ranch. On Saturdays, kids can participate in the Saturday Farm Camp as the parents explore other Valley attractions.
Visit Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park
In St. Helena, your family can experience a true operating grist mill from circa-1846. Watch as the “residents” operate the mill, turning the grains into flour. You may even take a sample home with you.
Soar Above with Hot Air Balloon Rides by Balloons Above the Valley
The most memorable experience from your Labor Day weekend in Napa Valley will likely be glorious early morning hot air balloon rides. Meet early in the morning for pastries and coffee, then climb aboard a safe, professionally piloted hot air balloon with Balloons Above the Valley. During your flight, you and your family will enjoy an incredible view of the vineyards and pristine communities. Drift silently among the clouds as you capture momentous photographs of yourselves and the breathtaking mountain backdrop.
