7) Napa Valley
Napa Valley is famous for its luxurious resorts, balloon rides and, of course, vineyards. Four hundred wineries are making use of the fertile soil in the region. Napa may be the largest and most well-known town, but Calistoga is known for mud baths and hot springs, Yountville for its Michelin restaurants and Oakville for its Cabernet Sauvignon. Some people choose to rent a car and take a DIY approach, but guided wine tours are also available for those who want to kick back and not worry about a designated driver. It’s not just about eating and drinking either. Visitors can go on bike, horse or glider rides and golfers can play at one of nine golf courses. The Petrified Forest in Calistoga is a great historic day hike where visitors can walk through a forest of fallen petrified trees that date back 3.4 Million years. Just north of downtown Calistoga, visitors can experience the famous geyser “Old Faithful” which remains one of the most photographed places in the State of California.
