Napa Valley - hello wine country!

I would say that this location needs no introduction and is one that I'm thrilled to be writing about since I've grown to really appreciate and enjoy wine over the years. Located north of San Francisco and the Bay area - depending on where you fly in and are driving from, it can be 1-2 hours. When booking a flight, check the airports in San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento and Oakland. The fastest drive is from Oakland or Sacramento.

Even if you don't know anything about wine or aren't a huge wine fan, the scenery is gorgeous and is an ideal getaway that feels like you're in another country with the convenience of a (hopefully) affordable flight. Be sure to check the weather for the time of year you are planning to visit - the temps dip to the 50s and 60s in the winter months and reach into the 80s during the summer months.
