Located just 80 km (50 mi) north of San Francisco, Napa sits at the southern end of the scenic Napa Valley, one of the world's major wine regions.
Step out of the city life by going to Armstrong Redwood State Reserve and Safari West. Venture out of the city with trips to Calistoga (Castello di Amorosa & Old Faithful Geyser of California), Glen Ellen (Jack London State Historic Park & Benziger Family Winery) and Sebastopol (Patrick Amiot & Lynmar Estate Winery). The adventure continues: indulge your senses at some of the top wineries in the area, indulge your taste buds at Sonoma Valley, enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour, and explore the striking landscape at Bodega Head.
