Once you get to American Canyon...

Get back to basics, soak up the fresh air, and take in breathtaking views at the 620-acre Newell Open Space Preserve. Admire the old barn, about one mile into the hike, and be on the lookout for grazing, free-range cattle. Want a water view? Follow the flat, 1.4-mile Napa River Bay Trail. When it’s time to refuel, enjoy housemade pasta at Ristorante La Strada, or satisfy your sweet tooth at Le Paris Artisan & Gourmet Cafe. Golfers can tee off at Eagle Vines or Chardonnay golf clubs. The aptly-named Chardonnay course meanders through acres of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapevines.


A little American Canyon history

This once sleepy region was developed as a residential area following World War II and incorporated as a town in 1992. Now, with growing commercial districts, the city maintains a sense of place with rolling hills, wetlands and nature preserves.
