Travel Guide: Napa Valley

For someone who spends half of her day thinking about her next meal and glass of wine, it seems sort of shocking that it took me this many years to visit California’s true gem: the Napa Valley. (I mean, this place has 7 Michelin-starred restaurants in one little Valley!) So when my parents invited us to spend a long weekend in Calistoga, we jumped at the chance to eat and drink our way through NorCal’s little haven.

As I’ve become an adult, I’ve found that my favorite vacations are ones where I eat and drink well and actually relax, a concept that is sometimes foreign to me. This quick visit to Napa did not disappoint, and I am already planning my next trip back to Wine Country.
