Migrate to Northern California to take in the fresh air, blossoming trees, plentiful wine and hot travel deals.
Early spring is the savvy traveler’s time to visit Napa and Sonoma. Barrel rooms are open and deals are popping up as fast as the picturesque mustard flowers that blanket the valley.
Many hotels offer as much as half-off rates compared with peak season. It’s safe to expect affordable packages in Wine Country with availability now through May -- but book as early as possible.
In the thick of the wine-tasting action sits Napa Valley Marriott with a $119 wine-tasting package for two. We also uncovered a bed & breakfast for $99 nightly that offers complimentary tasting passes and breakfast on-site.
Roam the Sonoma wine country and stay at Hilton Sonoma any day of the week for $89. Or, get away from it all for $129 per night with this 4-Diamond resort in Bodega Bay (a 30-minute drive to upscale Russian River wineries).
