Top 7 Things to do in Napa, CA

Napa Valley, California, largely known for its presence of vineyards and production of wine, has several other activities that we at Continuing Education Company recommend checking out if you’re feeling adventurous. One of the great things about a destination based conference is the well deserved leisure time before or after sessions. And, whether you're a wine connoisseur or a curious tourist, Napa Valley offers experiences that will leave you busy and amazed during your free time. Let's dive into what we think some of the top 7 activities are that will make your Napa Valley CME conference getaway unforgettable.

Wine Tours

By taking a guided tour through a historic Napa Valley winery you get the opportunity to learn about the process of crafting world-class wines with information on processes such as grape selection to fermentation and aging. Cap off your wine experience with arguably the general public’s favorite part of wine tours, the tasting. If you’re unsure of which of the 400 vineyards to visit, you can’t go wrong with the Rutherford Hill Winery, Chateau Montelena Winery, or Del Dotto Estate. Each of these wineries offers tours and tastings to the public.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

One of the more unique things that you can do in Napa. Take a peaceful hot air balloon ride above the Napa Valley at sunrise, taking in the beautiful vineyards below. This unforgettable experience offers a breathtaking perspective of the valley and creates some beautiful photo opportunities that will last a lifetime.

Bike Ride

Capture the beauty of Napa Valley at your own pace on a bike ride. You and your two wheels can pedal to beautiful wineries, vineyards, and other local spots along your journey. This is a great way to get some exercise and explore Napa in a unique, up-close way.

Wine Trains

Not interested in working out while traveling around Napa like a bike ride calls for? Embark on a kicked back, more relaxed,luxurious journey aboard a vintage train. Travel through the heart of Napa Valley wine country while you enjoy a delicious gourmet meal.

Wine Castles

Step into a fairytale of world class elegance by visiting a winery castle. Here you can tour the grounds, marvel at beautiful architecture, and partake in a wine tasting experience fit for royalty. While all the winery castles provide an amazing experience Castello di Amoroso, Domaine Carneros, and Stags Leap Wine Castle are top tier.

Cruise Down Highway 29

Enjoy a leisurely drive down the scenic Highway 29. Also known as the Silverado Trail, this winding highway allows you to cruise your way through hills covered in vineyards, charming towns and more.

Spa Retreat

After a day of exploration or a wonderful CME conference, refresh and rejuvenate at a world-class Napa Valley spa. Treat yourself with a pampering massage or therapeutic bath, but no trip to Napa is complete without a visit to the Calistoga’s mud baths.
