Every week look for my post of Paul Franson’s fabulous ‘Napa Life’ newsletter. It’s an insider’s guide to Napa Valley, a new kind of travel guide.for those who live here – or wish they did.
It tells you what to do and see in Napa Valley, what’s new and interesting, the insider’s scoop on raw politics, new hotels, developments and restaurants, upcoming events and how to get tickets, and almost always before you could hear it anywhere else. Highly opinionated, it reflects the views of the author who has been writing about Napa Valley from the inside for more than 16 years.
In his book, NapaLife an Insider’s Guide to Napa Valley, you’ll learn the stories behind the valley and its people, and learn everything from the best views in Napa Valley to why Napa Valley is the unique place it is. Some of the highlights in this week’s addition include: Big changes at Auction Napa Valley; Information on Festival del Sole and ticket pricing; BottleRock comedy lineup; an update on the Napa Valley Vine Trail’s Coalition for the 47 mile walking/biking trail from the Vallejo Ferry Terminal to the foothills of Mt. St. Helena in Calistoga; new Napa ARTwalk artists, Coalition to Preserve Copia, an update on hotel expansions and approved hotels; this week’s movies at the Cameo Cinema, Artisan Cheese Festival and much, much more.
