THE WORLD IS A BOOK, AND THOSE WHO DO NOT TRAVEL READ ONLY ONE PAGE. - ST. AUGUSTINE

Napa is an incredibly romantic and relaxing spot to enjoy great wines, savory food, and good company.

 

STAY IN NAPA

The White House is a gorgeous boutique hotel within perfect walking distance to all that downtown Napa has to offer! Their 17 rooms are modern, cozy, and full of charm, and were stocked with necessary wine essentials like glasses and corkscrews. The grounds offered various seating areas, poolside cabanas, fire pits, and lush landscaping. It was great to return to our hotel at night and feel right at home with a bottle of wine and a cigar on the patio. One of our favorite parts was the extensive, gourmet, small-plate breakfast they served each morning in the common area. Absolutely perfect! We will absolutely return here in the future and recommend that you check it out for yourself!

DINE IN NAPA

The Napa Valley is known for incredible wine, but its' selection of incredible restaurants will also impress you. Want to visit as many spots as possible? I suggest visiting the Oxbow Public Market in downtown Napa, where many restaurants have tasting counters.
