During my Spring trip to Napa, I had the pleasure of visiting so many wonderful places to eat and drink, and things to do. It was a blast. I honestly had never explored downtown much, and I’m a little sad that I didn’t before. I’m dying to go back, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you today in a Napa city guide.
Great atmosphere, perfect for tapas or pre-dinner drinks.
