Saint Helena, CA Travel, Photos Information and News

St. Helena in the Napa Valley is home to several Bed & Breakfast inns popular with adults visiting and planning to do some wine tasting in the region. In St. Helena, itself, excellent wineries such as Hall Wines. If you wonder what the city is all about, wine would be the first thing that comes to mind. There are around half a dozen wineries located in the city, with Hall Winery founded in 1885 as the Napa Valley Co-op.

An historic downtown with many family-owned businesses passed down through the generations, and vineyards of the valley, 95% of which are family owned, offer an established presence, and locals consider themselves proud and generous, giving back to their community in many ways. You might observe such spirit in the nightly bocce ball leagues, the Easter egg hunt each spring, the pet parade during each Harvest Festival or in the gazebo in the center of town, where free concerts are held on summer nights.

Napa Valley's reputation for producing world-class wines has its roots in St. Helena, the site of the valley's first commercial winery in 1861.
St. Helena is home to internationally-renowned restaurants, most serving locally-sourced produce, meats and cheeses. The Culinary Institute of America (CIA), one of the country's foremost cooking schools and the alma mater of many of the world's celebrated chefs, is also located in St. Helena and welcomes visitors who want to take a day-class with a field trip to the St. Helena Farmers' Market, or who want to learn how to pair wines with seasonal dishes made during Harvest.

St. Helena, located in California's Napa Valley, was Napa Valley's first incorporated city. Located just an hour north of San Francisco, St. Helena is planning a full roster of summer events ranging from film festivals and outdoor concerts to traditional fireworks and Main Street gatherings.

Cheers! On the first Friday of every month, Main Street retailers partner with local wineries for an old-fashioned street fair called "Cheers!" Local vintners pour samples of their best wines inside St. Helena's unique collection of Main Street shops. Napa Valley Wine Train offers round-trip transportation from downtown Napa to Cheers.

Located on the northern end of St. Helena's picturesque Main Street, Lyman Park is home to a free summer concert series, running July through August. Bring along a blanket and picnic to enjoy the 6 p.m. shows, held every Thursday night during the summer season.
