Napa is a vibrant California city rapidly catching up to the high profile of its famous vine-endowed Valley. It has a burgeoning first-class food scene, sophisticated wine-tasting houses, and proud artisanal markets. Napa is discovering that it does culture too, from opera to jazz to blues. And the city that once housed the 49ers has history in spades as well—Victorian Gothic churches, Italianate courthouses, and Art Deco bars have all survived earthquakes and fires to tell their part in Napa's fascinating story.

Hotels in Napa

Aside from a run of brand-name hotels on St. Helena Highway, much of the accommodation in Napa is found around its historic downtown. These top-rated Napa hotels are an eclectic bunch, ranging from characterful B&Bs to glorious historic hotels. The 4-star Andaz Napa bucks the trend with its bold modern design, while still receiving praise for its traditional service. Making the most of its river-fronting location is the Milliken Creek Inn & Spa. It features a health club, lobby fireplace, and a garden lapped by the Napa River. Lastly the luxurious La Belle Epoque is an amazing Victorian inn, full of period detail and homely charm.

Things to see in Napa

This former mining boom-town is truly historic, home to many buildings dating back before the 1906 earthquake. A walk along its rejuvenated Riverfront is a delightful proof of this. Its most lovely Victorian-era building is the Napa Opera House, built in 1879. Its stalls saw vaudeville acts, musical performances, and even the occasional opera. Today it is a winery, restaurant, and music venue. Close by is another echo of Napa's past, but one that takes you to its booming present. The Napa Valley Wine Train service reminds that it's wines, not mines, that put Napa on the map nowadays. A trip in its vintage railway carriages may well be the most pleasant way to become better acquainted with them. Lastly, for a real artisan food treat, visit the Oxbow Public Market. As well as local produce, you'll find wine tasting, beer sampling, and cooking demos that reveal the best in Napa's flavors and tastes.

Good for all travelers

Where once Napa was seen as only a launching point for adventures in the wider Napa Valley, today it has become a destination in itself. Its many faces hold attraction for all sorts of visitors. Stay in one of the beautiful historic hotels in Napa and its romantic side comes to the fore. Lingering walks along the river, or classy dining in downtown are just a step away. Business travelers are drawn here for its great potential as a base for corporate entertainment, both in the city and the Valley. And Napa has a funkier more youthful vibe today, one that culture-lovers are just starting to appreciate.
