When you think of Napa in the summer, what do you think of? We think of wine, sunshine and trying to stay cool, but this task can be harder than you’d think. Take a look at our suggestions on how to keep cool this summer while enjoying all of what Napa has to offer.
Fuel Up on Good Food
After you stop in for a tasting and you might be feeling hungry. The first step to enjoying wine country to its fullest is filling up on some great food. If you prefer outdoor seating, Goose and Gander has a wonderful garden area. A shaded umbrella will help cool you off but still allow for you to enjoy the beautiful scenery. A terrific indoor dining experience awaits at Market Restaurant. Located in a historical building, this restaurant features stone walls and an antique bar while having twists on American classic dishes.
Head Inside for a Show
Sometimes a great way to beat the heat is by spending an afternoon at the theater. Lincoln theatre in Yountville is home to the Symphony Napa Valley where some of the world’s best musicians perform. If you are in the mood for live-entertainment, Uptown Theatre in Napa will be your spot. With local artists as well as large scaled bands, Uptown has a little bit of everything. The Cameo Cinema in St. Helena is an extraordinary theater where locals go to view current films. This beautiful, new remodeled one screen digital theater is 103 years old and sits in the center of St. Helena on Main Street.
Don’t Forget to Pamper Yourself
When it is time to call it quits on the summer heat, pamper yourself with a relaxing spa treatment. Nothing says relaxation more than some you-time and a spa. The Health Spa Napa Valley has an upscale contemporary feel and rejuvenating treatments, right in the heart of St. Helena. Their welcoming staff and boutique style allows you to wind down and makes you feel right at home.
