Considering a stay in Napa Valley? Beginning at the town of Napa and moving north, you'll drive through Napa, Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, Saint Helena and Calistoga. With several towns to choose from, and every town being near excellent wineries, how do you make your choice? Let me help...
Saint Helena is one of my favorite towns in Napa Valley and here are a dozen reasons why:
1. Prettier than the town of Napa
2. More free tasting at wineries than in town of Napa
3. More fog-free than towns of Napa and Yountville (How hate that ever present fog this summer)
4. A good number of charming B&Bs to choose from.
5. Downtown has some great shops and restaurants.
6. Doesn't have the seedy spas that Calistoga has
7. Downtown is surrounded by charming neighborhoods with Victorian homes
8. Lacks the industrial area and car dealerships that you'll find in town of Napa
9. Not tacky or touristy
10. Good access to great bicycling
11. Surrounding countryside is greener and more forested than towns of Napa and Yountville, but not quite as forested as area around Calistoga
12. Taylor's Refresher - THE most upscale hamburger joint - ONLY in the wine country.
- Pros:Nice B&Bs, restaurants, shops, romantic, beautiful surroundings
- Cons:Traffic going down the mainstreet moves at a snail's pace during the summer weekends
- In a nutshell:An excellent choice for a wine country vacation
This hotel isn't in St. Helena; it's in Yountville, which is about 10 minutes south of St. Helena. I'm including it here... more travel advice
Taylor's Refresher is an institution in St. Helena, and has been ever since 1949. It LOOKS like some run of the mill... more travel advice
