Napa, California offers the perfect setting for unplugging from the world and spending some quality time with your best gal pals. For those interested in a girl’s getaway, few places can provide the pampering and pleasures as well as this picture perfect town tucked away in California’s wine country.
Certainly Napa can accommodate 5-star tastes, but it can also be refreshingly budget-friendly; it’s just a matter of knowing where to look and pulling together all the right pieces.
Here are our favorite elements of a girl’s getaway in Napa:
Milliken Creek Inn
California wine country hotels and boutique accommodations are beloved for their warmth, luxury, and personalized touches. Reserve rooms at the Milliken Creek Inn, located in downtown Napa, and enjoy a wine and cheese social hour on the terrace, breakfast in bed, and an on-site spa, all tucked into a picturesque setting that makes for a charming hideaway.
In the past couple decades, downtown Napa has flourished and today includes a wealth of stores that can satisfy everyone from the souvenir shoppers to the stylish fashionistas on the lookout for a one-of-a-kind boutique. Take a peek inside the Helen Lyall clothing boutique at Riverfront or visit the Cake Plate Boutique for a tantalizing selection of women’s clothing and accessories.
Winery Tours: Mumm Napa
Certainly no trip to Napa is complete without ample time to meander through the wineries that dot the countryside just outside of the city. If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, gather the ladies for a sparkling wine tasting Mumm Winery and enjoy a leisurely afternoon on the winery’s outdoor patio. Chances are that after a flight of three bubblies, the tiny bubbles will spark some unforgettable conversation.
Solbar at Solage
Napa Valley night life is generally rather calm, but there are still many venues that stay open into the wee small hours. Keep the girl talk going and saunter up to one of the city’s numerous wine bars, or cocktail lounges, including Solbar at Solage Calistoga. Enjoy the ambiance and ample wine list alongside the company of dear friends.
The Bottom Line:
Napa offers all the ingredients for a girl’s getaway weekend that will not soon be forgotten!
