The Napa Valley is one of the more romanticized parts of California. An American version of Italy's Tuscany, The Napa Valley is home to almost 300 premier wine producers set among rolling hills and beautiful scenery.
Stretching about 30 miles long, there are six towns in the Napa Valley: the town of Napa, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, St Helena and Calistoga, each with its own small town charm.
Calistoga to the north is world famous for its geothermal mineral water and mud baths; St. Helena that sits in the heart of the Napa Valley offers serenity and the town of Napa acts as a hub for activity.
Visitors to the Napa Valley can spend their days touring wineries, experiencing the tastes of the Valley, savoring exquisite dinning, enjoying spa treatments or just leisurely strolling thorough the grounds of the numerous full service resorts scattered around the valley.
Less than an hour by car from San Francisco, the Napa Valley seems like it is in a whole other county.
