Springtime is a magnificent time to visit Napa Valley. The weather is beginning to warm, the leaves start to return, and the always beautiful vistas are once again punctuated with bright yellow mustard flowers that line the vineyard rows. The early spring is also known as Mustard Season in Napa Valley.
As the vineyards complete their winter dormancy and begin the budding stage that heralds the new growing season, visitors to Napa Valley can again experience all the region has to offer.
Outdoor and many group activities are available for everyone to enjoy. Hot air balloon rides, biking on the Napa Vine Trail, hiking, and picnicking at any of the numerous parks and trails are only some examples of activities that visitors can enjoy.
And, naturally, a visit to a fun, safe, and educational Napa winery tour is always a great option while visiting the area.
