Downright Heavenly

Napa Valley constitutes some of the most hallowed ground for winemaking anywhere in the world. And there's no question the 500-plus wineries turning out top-tier Chardonnays, Cabernet Sauvignons, and other varieties are a major draw for Bay Area daytrippers. But tasting (and buying) wine is far from the only thing to do in Napa: There's also a dizzying lineup of exquisite gourmet restaurants and excellent art galleries--plus natural draws such as Napa's Skyline Wilderness Park and Robert Louis Stevenson State Park.

Really, what's likely to most impress you about Napa Valley is the dreamy scenery: hillsides swaddled in vineyards and oak savannas rising to gentle forested mountains. For a pastoral escape within easy reach of San Francisco, Napa's a no-brainer.
