Guide to a Weekend in Calistoga

by JEN SCHMITZ on MARCH 8, 2018

Travelers looking for a relaxing vacation in Napa County should pay attention to the small town of Calistoga. Visitors to Napa Valley’s most northern city can mingle with farmers, grape growers, winemakers, and locals just by walking down the street, or stopping by one of the many restaurants the town has to offer. Wine tasting and relaxing by a geothermal mineral pool are the main attractions, but Calistoga has much more to offer.

by WC STAFF on DECEMBER 22, 2015
