Napa Wine Train
Duration: 3 hours and 30 min
We are going to dig right into our three days in Napa Valley by taking the Napa Wine Train because it provides the perfect introduction to the region. The Napa Wine Train consists of wonderfully restored vintage train cars, and just riding in the beautiful and comfortable atmosphere makes this trip special. The food is another highlight -- in the spirit of Napa Valley's proud food scene, the train's chef uses seasonal produce, humanely-raised meats, and line-caught fish. Lunch onboard the train usually consists of a three-course meal with wine and coffee.
The train's route follows the tracks that were laid here in the 1860s to bring people to the famous hot springs of Napa Valley's northernmost town, Calistoga. The wine train begins in the outskirts of Napa but quickly becomes more and more beautiful as it goes farther north in the valley. The 1952 Vista Dome car, one of only ten glass dome train cars built, is my recommendation because its dome allows for panoramic views. If relaxing on the wine train is not enough activity for you, you can pre-book a winery tour. In this case, you will debark the train for the tour and re-board to return to Downtown Napa. Note that some tours mean a later return.
At $4.99, the itinerary will pay for itself the first time you follow my advice on dining and traveling destinations.
