Anytime J and I are planning a trip, I spend hours upon hours searching through Pinterest to read all of the many travel blogs, itineraries, and must-see to-do lists. I love researching and finding the hidden gems of our destination through the eyes and the blog of the everyday traveler. I have been planning on travel blogging for awhile now, and while I will definitely blog our individual trips with more of a detailed itinerary, I am really excited to be launching the Top Ten of some of my favorite cities. I love a good to-do list, in fact if to-do lists could be a love language on its own, it probably would be one of mine, along with words of affirmation. So if you are reading this post because you are planning a trip to Napa or are dreaming of a future vacation… please take this list as some of our personal favorite recommendations. And as always, do your research and planning ahead of time, and be sure to select the places that YOU definitely want to do or see. Now.. without further adieu… Wanderlust Ten – Napa Style
When traveling to wine country…
The beautiful view at Rutherford Hill. They have a beautiful picnic grounds that as long as your purchase a bottle of wine, you are able to enjoy on their grounds with your own hand-packed meal.
Some bubbly at Mumm Napa. Seriously, no better way to start the day. It was a cold morning when we went, or else we would have loved to sit on their beautiful patio. Nevertheless, the inside view was just as marvelous.
Gorgeous views at the beautiful winery, Castillo di Amorosa.
The Hennessey House Bed & Breakfast, walking distance from downtown Napa.
Our own self-guided bike tasting tour. The views in Napa Valley are absolutely gorgeous.
The Oxbow Market.
Because every vacation should have a spa day and the spa at Mount View Hotel & Spa was absolutely perfection!
As always, this list represents our favorite things to do in the Wine Valley, there are so many more wonderful restaurants, wineries, tours & experiences. I would love to hear from you as to what your favorite must-do in Napa is!
