Napa Valley is the ultimate destination for performance festivals. One of my favorites is the live music event, Bottle Rock Napa Valley: an annual three-day festival featuring a medley of artists. Just to name a few bands, the line-up for 2015 includes Imagine Dragons, Capital Cities, Tristan Prettyman, and No Doubt. The Napa Valley Performing Arts Center at Lincoln Theater is a fabulous venue in Yountville built on strong community artistic and philanthropic relationships. Symphony Napa Valley is out of this world! Other events in Napa Valley that I never miss out on include Auction Napa Valley, the undisputed champion of charity wine auctions, and Festival del Sole, which headlines 10 days of performances, winery dinners, tastings, concerts, and wellness activities.
Next, explore the Napa Outlets for discount shopping. As a seasoned shopper and fashionista, I take shopping very seriously! When I’m on the hunt for designer pieces, Main Street in St. Helena remains the choice district surrounded by lovely boutiques such as Pearl and Foot Candy Fab Shoes. I love the personalized, elegant air of each of these shops, and I highly recommend them to my fellow shopping addicts.
While St. Helena and Sonoma Valley homes are prime locations for entertaining, Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley exhibits one of the most fabulous art, design, and wine galleries in California. Other favorable scenes are Nickel & Nickel in Oakville for food and wine events, and Quintessa in the heart of Napa Valley for group tastings or private parties.
