Napa Valley Memorial Day 2012

It’s hard to believe that summer of 2012 is upon us, but here we are… so what am I going to do over Memorial Day weekend? I’m sure I am not the only person realizing how close the holiday already is, so here is a list of some of the best activities in Napa Valley that are scheduled between now and Memorial Day.  

 The one of the best things about living in Napa Valley is the fantastic weather, especially at this time of year! You will find most of the activities on our short list are held outdoors, I just revisited the weather and found that we should hold between 75-80 degrees over Memorial Day weekend, it doesn’t get much better than that!

We hope this list helps your Memorial Day Weekend be the most memorable one ever!!
