Get outside and off-the-beaten-path in the city you think you already know. 


- Stop by Sweetie Pies Bakery for a coffee and a hearty egg sandwich- you’ll need to fuel up for a big day of adventure!  

- Enjoy a scenic drive to Skyline Park for a peaceful morning hike or bike ride. Skyline Park features 25 miles of multi-use trails for various skill levels, as well as the Martha Walker Native Habitat Garden, which invites visitors to enjoy a unique presentation of flora from all over the state.


- Time to relax with a delicious picnic paired with award-winning wines at Ashes & Diamonds. The carefully curated A&D Picnic can be enjoyed on rolling grass berms or at one of the outdoor tables. Individually prepared snacks include an ample assortment of house-made mezze, focaccia, charcuterie and crudités, paired with your separate purchase of one or more bottles.

- Next, head downtown to explore the Napa Art Walk. Founded in July 2010 by the city and Arts Council Napa Valley, the Art Walk has hosted a rotation of 61 sculptures by 50 creators along some of Napa’s busiest corridors. They form a walking tour meant to bring shoppers downtown. As you explore the public art, be sure to stop into a few local boutiques in Downtown Napa for a bit of retail therapy. 

- Or, if you’re up for more outdoor adventure, rent a kayak or paddleboard and cruise the Napa River. Napa Valley Paddle has SUP boards and kayaks available to rent. 


- It’s time for dinner! You’ve probably tried many of the restaurants downtown, so head over to Browns Valley and try Hop Creek Pub, a local hidden gem that serves up yummy California comfort food. Try the black & blue burger or the chicken pesto sandwich. Or, check out a full list of Napa restaurants and pick something new.  

- You've had such a great day exploring Napa, you're likely not ready to leave quite yet. Treat yourself to a home-away-from-home luxury staycation at Carneros Resort & Spa
