The Best Time to Visit Napa

There are several reasons that make early May the best time to visit Napa. To begin with, late-spring showers will ensure that the hills are green and wildflowers are blooming. The vineyards are gorgeous this time of year, plus the crowds will not have yet arrived to crush the tasting rooms and roadways. Do avoid Memorial Day, however; flying will be hectic, and prices for flights and hotel accommodations will be higher. 

Best Places to Stay in Napa

You may be tempted by the low cost of hotels that seem too good to be true. Check the location first. They may say they’re in or near Napa, but generally that is not the case. If they’re in Healdsberg, Fairfield, or American Canyon, beware. There are much closer locations to the city of Napa.

Downtown Napa is cool and trendy with terrific restaurants. Try the River Terrace Inn, the Best Western Elm House Inn, or the Embassy Suites. If you prefer bed and breakfasts, Napa Inn is the place to stay.

Charming Towns Nearby

If you want to explore other towns in the region, try Yountville, a quaint town located just minutes from some of the best restaurants, such as the French Laundry, Bistro Jeanty, Bouchon Bistro, and Hurley’s.

St. Helena and neighboring Rutherford are also good places to land. The hotels here - like Meadowood, Auberge du Soliel, or the boutique Rancho Caymus - cost more, as they are resorts.

Finally, check out Calistoga. It’s a town in the northern tip of Napa, famous for mud baths. Try the affordable Dr. Wilkerson's Hot Springs Resort or splurge on the super-pricey Calistoga Ranch.
