Top California Attractions You Cannot Overlook 

California is a great city with many attractions that you will definitely want to visit. If you are on a visit to the city, you will find it impossible not to explore these top California attractions. We are not talking about the city, a town or a National Park. Rather we are defining some of the top California attractions which you should never miss. Let us look into why these attractions are different from the rest. 

 Wine Tasting — The Napa Valley Wineries 

Various parts of California produce good wine. However, most of these do not have the mark of approval as Napa Valley. Wine making within the Napa Valley started long before 1976 and winemakers from the region have been perfecting their vintages from the mid-1800s. This was the time when the early settlers planted grapevines and dug caves in the hillsides of the Valley. The Napa Valley is narrow—barely 5 miles wide— and extends for about 30 miles.

The wineries in Napa Valley offer plenty of ways to taste wine. Visitors are catered to by staff who are willing to pour the wine into the glass and interact with you before moving to the next visitor. However, no single winery can give you a unique experience. You have to conduct some research to find the best Napa Valley wineries. That way, you can be confident you will have plenty to talk about when you return home.
