Here are the best ideas for a romantic getaway Napa has to offer.

Hot Air Balloon Ride

Can you say amazing! A hot air balloon ride is the perfect romantic activity: it’s a little scary, so you and your beau can console each other. The views are breathtaking and you can find commonality in the things you find beautiful together. It’s intimate: you don’t get much closer to someone than when you are in a hot air balloon; there’s not much room in those things, you know. It’s just an incredible experience, overall.

Bring Out Your Inner Child

Relationships are so serious all of the time. Why can’t we just all kick back and have a little fun? During your stay in Napa, book a tour of a real life “Willy Wonka” chocolate factory. Professional chocolatiers walk you through their craft and let you sample their wares. What is more romantic than chocolate? Not too much, really. It’s sensual and playful, and everyone loves it. Give it a whirl and rediscover the fun side of your relationship!

Take Some Risks – You Only Live Once!

If the slow and steady rise of a hot air balloon isn’t going to cut it for a romantic getaway, why not give a fast car a try? It’ll cost you more than a peaceful hot air balloon ride, but you can book a private session with a racecar driver and take a real race car out for a spin…on a track. But still! If you are the kind of couple that loves adrenaline and loves to get in on the adventure, then booking a fast car session is the way to go! It’s totally romantic, and nothing does a world a good for the relationship than adrenaline. Trust us.

Drink All the Wine

You can’t visit Napa and not drink wine. While you probably shouldn’t drink all the wine, per se, you can definitely sample all the wine. The best way to make sure you are trying the best Napa has to offer is to book a wine tasting tour. Some tours will even take you to multiple vineyards. It’s a relaxing, intimate experience that brings you the finest wines and cheeses anywhere in the world. It’s a great way to spend an afternoon with your loved one.

Whatever you find yourselves doing in Napa, you won’t be disappointed. Warm weather, plenty to see and do, lots of great places to stay: your perfect romantic getaway is just waiting for your in Napa.

  1. I think the only way that I could cope with a hot air balloon ride would be to sit in the bottom of the basket with my eyes shut I am terrified of heights so it would be pointless really my husband has done a hot air balloon trip and thoroughly enjoyed every second
