If you choose to honeymoon in Napa Valley then you have made the right choice! Wine obviously first comes to mind when you think of Napa Valley, but it also offers a lot of romantic spots and fun attractions for every honeymooner to enjoy!
Napa Valley is an hour-and-a-half drive from the San Francisco downtown. If you are living or vacationing in the city, the Napa Valley makes for a perfect getaway — whether just for a day, for the weekend, or longer. Visitors from many parts of the United States, as well as from all over the world, visit the Napa Valley to taste its world-class wines, see the gorgeous landscape, enjoy the finest cuisine, visit excellent shops, enjoy some serious sports from golf to tennis to water skiing, and get pampered at the highly-rated spas.
Start in downtown Napa which has retained its unique charm. Beautiful old homes are now considered as the city’s treasures, and charming boutique homes are also a must-see. Take a leisurely stroll at a walkway on the banks of the Napa River which will lead you to the Hatt/Napa Mill Building, which are also historical treasures.
Being in a wine country such as Napa Valley, wine tours of course will never go out of style and are a top priority on many people’s bucket list. As a honeymooning couple, you may want a more intimate wine tour. Check out some off-the-beaten-track wineries which aren’t so crowded as the major players: Artesa Vineyards and Winery, Burgess Cellars, Cliff Lede Vineyards, Honig Vineyard and Winery, Miner Family Vineyards and the Hess Collection (which is also an art gallery) are only just a few of the many “best-kept” secrets in Napa.
If both of you are art and history lovers, you won’t feel short of these things to enjoy in the Napa Valley as it is the home of art, music, culture and architecture — not just wines and vineyards. Apart from the winery/art gallery the Hess Collection, check out the other museums such as Sharpsteen Museum, Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, Space Station Museum, di Rosa, Artists of the Valley, and many more.
If you want to take your romance to new heights, do it with a hot air balloon ride! Balloons Above the Valley (BATV) is one of the top choices for couples on a honeymoon. Since 1976 BATV has been providing safe and enjoyable hot air balloon rides over the gorgeous Napa Valley landscape, plus we other perks that will leave our guests hankering for more!
