Things To Do In The Napa Valley When You Are All Wined Out.

Those of you who have read my articles before know how crazy I am about the Napa Valley. It is absolutely GORGEOUS!

And that takes nothing away from the other wine growing regions of California, they are great too. I just happen to really like the Napa Valley and its wines. Over 3 million people come to the valley each year to savor wine, relax and get away.

So, after an intense day or two of tours and tastings, what do you do?

If you pack too much into your trip, you may want to just sit back and relax a bit and do something other than just more wine tasting.

Well, the Napa Valley has you well taken care of!

Hiking trails, museums, art galleries, discount outlet malls, golf, tennis, horse back riding, historic buildings, historic state parks, spas, ballooning and much more.

Take an afternoon and visit historic Robert Louis Stevenson state park.

Do a round of golf at Kennedy Golf Course (one of several courses).

See the history of the Napa Valley at the Napa Valley Museum.

In Calistoga you can visit the Calistoga Geyser and relax in a delightful hot geyser spring spa.

Don't want to travel all the way to Calistoga from Napa? There are several excellent spas in Napa, Yountville and St. Helena.

Or, you can combine a bit of wine tasting with art. Visit the Hess Collection to see their art gallery and savor their fine wine.

Artesa is "the jewel of the Napa Valley", sitting high on a hill, looking out over the Carneros region towards San Francisco, just 10
minutes from downtown Napa and feels like you are miles away. Here's a secret - after your tasting, walk out on the back porch and
see gorgeous vistas of rolling hills. On a clear day you can see almost all the way to San Francisco. Artesa is built into the top
of a hill. It has wonderful fountains. It really is a jewel.

Cuvaison is another winery with art.

Looking for spectacular architecture? Visit Chateau Montelena, Darioush or Niebaum Coppola.

Copia - The American Center For Wine Foods and the Arts is an educational look into the history and culture of art, food and wine.

There is just so much you can do that you don't need to spend all of your time doing tours and tastings.

The single most important thing to remember? Relax and enjoy your stay. There is lots to do in Napa and it will still be here when you come back for another visit.

The next day. SATURDAY! The beginning of our 1 week holiday. I woke up at 11 a.m. HAHA. Got ready for lunch then I had extra ACCOUNTS tuition at 2 p.m. Bugger eh? Taking narcissistic photos is back on my to-do list! YAY! HAHAHA. Hmm... people usually get break outs when stress seeps in during exams but I never seem to experience that, except for the time-of-the-month thingy. Anyhoo, I guess that means I'm not stressing! Ah! I deserve a kick in the butt. Too laid back, so I've been told by my pa

I cooked tonight!!! Technically I cooked twice today — more on that later. But yes, I cooked dinner tonight. It was so weird to get out my apron and not have to tie it over my enormous baby bump. I also noticed how very dirty I’d gotten it from the days when my belly would hit the stove long before my arms caught up to it! On the menu was Balsamic Braised Chicken, steamed zucchini, and rice. It’s an easy, easy recipe, since all you really do is brown the chicken thighs, saute up some shallots
