Exploring Downtown Napa (Wineries aside)

We had a short visit to Napa back in early December. We were there for a birthday party, but we did have time to explore the downtown area for a day. We are very much aware that Napa is know for their wineries, but, they are a bit pricey and we have lovely wineries near us in the Sacramento region we prefer.

We hope you enjoy and thanks for watching! #sippycupadventures of Northern California.
