The Ultimate BROcation in Calistoga

Day One:

Check into your hotel and immediately head out to start exploring Calistoga.

Begin with a stop at Sharpsteen Museum to get a good sense of Calistoga’s Old West history, and to view the Oscar awarded to museum founder Ben Sharpsteen.

Grab lunch at Busters BBQ (pulled pork or tri-tip sandwich with baked beans) and head to Old Faithful Geyser with beers or a bottle of wine for a picnic. The challenge: get the Tennessee fainting goats to actually faint.

Head to the Calistoga Welcome Center to plan out your visit with complimentary tools that include maps, 2-for-1 tasting coupons, and more suggestions.

Stop at Tank Garage Winery to fill up on unique blended wines. Then stop at Tank Garage’s sister winery, T-Vine Winery for some single varietals.

Take advantage of Happy Hour before dinner at Calistoga Inn Restaurant & Brewery or Sam’s Social Club for some craft beer.

Catch some late night vibes at the local’s dive bar, Susie’s.

Day Two:

Enjoy breakfast at Café Sarafornia (try the Country Fried Steak).

Burn off breakfast calories with a hike on Oat Hill Mine Trail and enjoy the view of Napa Valley. More options include a round of golf at Mount St. Helena Golf Course in Calistoga or a Sip N’ Cycle tour through Getaway Adventures.

Ready for wine tasting? Head to Vermeil Wines and talk football with Dick Vermeil fans.

Stop for lunch at Palisades Deli (order the Big N’ Tasty)

Next, take a drive to Castello di Amorosa to channel your inner knight in shining armor.

A short drive away, take a break at Bale Grist Mill for a tour and to mill your own flour.

When you’re ready for dinner, head to Johnny’s Restaurant & Bar or Sushi Mambo (order The Diablo).

Catch some late night vibes at the local’s dive bar, Susie’s.
