Napa Valley is a wine region in Napa County, California. It is famous the world over for their unique blends such as the Cabernet Sauvignon red wines, and the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc white wines. In addition to the premium wines, Napa Valley is also famous for its charming countryside, vibrant festivals and recreation opportunities, and the finest hotels, restaurants, and resorts. There are a variety of things to do in Napa – more than you might imagine!

More than 400 vineyards dot the Napa and Sonoma valleys, and if you’re all about the wines, you will have a handful there. For impromptu wine tastings, you may have to go to the bigger wineries. But if you want to have a more intimate tastings (and a honeymoon is practically about intimate moments, isn’t it?) you may have to book for reservations at the smaller boutique wineries. Explore the underground cellars such as the massive wine cave beneath Rutherford Hill.

A honeymoon is also an opportunity for the newlyweds to take a well-deserved break from the preparations and the big day. Relax at one of several fine resorts and spas such as the Milliken Creek Inn and Spa, a perfect place to stay during your honeymoon. Situated in the heart of the Napa Valley, this charming resort is like living in a beautiful home. There is a pretty garden beside the river, where you can also do activities such as kayaking. Rooms are designed with excellent taste making you feel cozy — they have queen-sized beds, en suite bathrooms and fireplace. Pamper yourself and your new spouse with Milliken’s exclusive spas. Upon arriving at the resort you’ll be welcomed with chocolate-covered strawberries and a quarter bottle of champagne. Wi-Fi is free of charge, too.

Napa Valley has many fine quality dining options. Why not try Tra Vigne, one of the highest-rated restaurants. The restaurant’s quaint charm and laid-back, lush setting make it a perfect place to have a romantic Tuscan-styled dinner. Their famed pizzeria features all-time favorites as Rosemary Pizzetta and Wood-Oven Baked Fig Pizza, which are a must-try.

Or get aboard the Napa Valley Wine Train, a fantastically-restored 19th-century train where there are exquisite-looking rooms for fine dining. Have a romantic lunch and dinner inside the train as it passes in the midst of the lovely vineyards from Napa to St. Helena (and back).
