Napa Valley climate
As you would expect from a wine-growing region, the weather in Napa Valley is absolutely glorious. The area is far enough inland that it escapes San Francisco’s thick fog, but is close enough to the ocean that it cools down just as the heat becomes overwhelming. The southern end of the Valley, near San Pablo Bay, is cooler, while the western end, near the Mayacamas Mountains experiences more rainfall. Temperatures typically stay between 20-30 year round.
Getting around Napa Valley
Public transportation isn’t exactly the most popular method of Napa Valley travel. Most people opt for car rental to enjoy the beautiful scenery as they cruise through both Napa and Sonoma Valleys. Take in the lush, green atmosphere, rolling hills, and stunning views as you weave in and out of striking altitudes.
If you’d rather rely on public transit, then either the Vine Public Shuttle or Lake Transit will take you to some of the more popular attractions. There are shuttle services all around the St. Helena area and a large amount of prevalent wineries. The Lake Transit has scheduled transportation to Ukiah, Clearlake, Clearlake Oaks, Lower Lake, Lakeport, and Middletown.
