Destination Spotlight: Napa
Greetings, we hope you all had a safe and pleasant Thanksgiving, and finding safe ways to get into the spirit for the festive holiday season upon us.
This week’s spotlight is on Napa Valley and the abundance of outdoor recreation opportunities and holiday happenings you can find there! Of course, this destination is not only a favorite of ours to work in, but near and dear to my heart as I am a proud Vintage Crusher alum…
Napa Valley is one of the most beautiful places in the country to visit with its miles of lush vineyards, wide-open outdoor spaces, ideal weather, quaint towns, and the holidays are typically a magical time to visit. While things might look a little different this year, there are still many safe and festive opportunities to enjoy Napa including a socially distant outdoor plaza in St .Helena, outdoor wine tasting experiences, socially distant heated igloos in the Oxbow district just to name a few!
Don’t forget there’s plenty of room to explore- whether it be high above in a hot air balloon, or on the ground in the Skyline Wilderness, Bothe Park, or even on the Napa River in a private gondola or atop a kayak. We hope you all have a chance to take advantage of some of Napa Valley’s abundant beauty, socially distant and safe activities, and holiday happenings!
