1. Mural at Jamieson Ranch Vineyards, American Canyon
Every summer, Jamieson Ranch invites street artists to paint the south wall of the winery. The result is an annually changing mural that brings a colorful splash of city life to Napa Valley wine country.
2. Napa Valley Pedal 'n Paddle Tour, Napa
On this guided excursion run by Getaway Adventures, get some up-close glimpses of the Carneros region on an eight-mile bike ride (with stops for winetasting and a picnic lunch), then paddle (as rigorously or as slowly as you like) on the Napa River.
3. Skyline Wilderness Park, Napa
A hike or a mountain-bike ride here requires moderate exertion, but the payoffs are extreme. From the park entrance in Napa, take the Skyline Trail on a gradual climb to sweet views that range from Mount St. Helena to the valley’s southern end. It's seven miles round-trip; the farther you go, the more you see.
