Calistoga California

Relax in Calistoga California, home to many hot springs, resorts and wineries in Napa Valley, CA. Try a mud bath - Calistoga style, in one of the many Calistoga resorts. This is my favorite vacation destination in northern California.

 Vacation in Calistoga CA

Vacation in Calistoga CA

The charming town of Calistoga, CA is located at the northern end of Napa Valley, in the heart of wine country. Main street runs from highway 29 to the Silverado Trail, and offers many resorts, spas, shops and restaurants for your relaxing vacation. The area is surrounded by mountains on both sides, and a valley filled with wineries and vineyards. Because it is located at the northern end of Napa Valley, the wineries are less crowded and the crowds more relaxed. And speaking of relaxed - you must try a Calistoga spa treatment while you are here.

 Calistoga Geyser

Calistoga Geyser

Old Faithful is the Calistoga Geyser which lets off steam every 30 minutes. If you've never seen a geyser, it is pretty interesting to see, although I personally prefer to relax in one of the mineral baths at a local resort.

Old Faithful Calistoga Geyser is open to visitors 7 dyas a week, from 9 AM - 6 PM (5 PM in winter). Admission is $20 for adults and $3 for childrern.

Directions: From Napa Valley, take 29 north past the turn off to Calistoga. Continue on Foothill Blvd. for about 1 mile, then turn right on Tubbs Lane.

Calistoga Inn Restaurant, Calistoga, California

There are many fine dining restaurants in Calistoga. If you take a stroll along main street, you can check out the menus which are posted in the windows.

I think one of the best Calistoga restaurants in the Calistoga Inn Restaurant and Brewery. They have an outdoor dining patio, with tables under the shady trees.

Directions to Calistoga California

Calistoga is located at the northern end of Napa Valley, approximately 75 miles north of San Francisco. I like the drive through Napa Valley up highway 29, or along the Silverado Trail at the eastern side of the valley.

If you are flying to the area, you can fly into Oakland airport, San Francisco airport, or Sacramento airport then drive approximately 2 hours up to Calistoga. The trip makes a nice weekend getaway.
