John Muir National Historic Site

This national park is the preserved home of one of the United States' most famous naturalists and conservationists, John Muir. Muir, who passed away in 1914, founded the Sierra Club and is considered the father of the National Parks system. The site consists of Muir's 17-room Victorian mansion and surrounding fruit ranch, his gravesite, the Martinez Adobe, and the recently added Mount Wanda area that features the John Muir Nature Trail. Take the self-guided tour of the grounds. There are special events around Christmas and on John Muir's birthday, April 21.

Schramsberg Vineyards

The Schramsberg winery was established way back in the year 1862 by German immigrants, and a century later it became the first winery in America to attempt the production of sparkling wines. Today, it produces eight varietals of sparkling wine—they are made primarily from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes and all of them are bottle-fermented. For a taste, you can visit this historic winery by appointment.

Bale Grist Mill State Historic Park

This restored mill, built in 1846, still works, and visitors can see its massive millstones in action when millers grind flour out of local wheat. Bale Grist flour, literally the "run of the mill," can be purchased at the mill when demonstrations take place. Check for the sign saying "Milling Today." Bale Grist Mill demonstrations are irregularly scheduled. Demonstrations are more frequent on weekends and in summer months. The verdant surroundings are a great addition to the historic charm of this site.

Mission San Francisco Solano

Founded in 1823, the last California mission, Mission San Francisco Solano, served only 11 years before its secularization. But without it, history would be rewritten to upset many wine-loving travelers: Sonoma Valley wine country wouldn't exist, and the town of Sonoma wouldn't exist. Today, the mission is part of the Sonoma State Historic Park in the lovely downtown. It is rather small, but theexhibits are impressive in terms of variety and quality, from watercolor paintings of California missions by Chris Jorgensen to flea-market-finds oil paintings and artifacts. The courtyard is anoasis filled with olive trees, walls of cactus and rosemary.

Old Town

Historic architecture, open-air markets, clothing boutiques, antique stores, gourmet food shops - all surrounded by fabulous vineyards and wineries - this is downtown Napa. Buy quality clothing from the Mustard Seed Clothing Co., hunt for treasures at Antiques On Second, and don't forget to stop into one of the dozens of award-winning cafes and restaurants to refuel. Just a few miles away on Factory Stores Drive you will find the Napa Premium Outlets, the number one spot in the area to find designer brands such as BCBG Max Azria, DKNY, and Coach, at heavily discounted prices.

Tilden Park Merry-Go-Round

Tilden Park Merry-Go-Round is located at Tilden Regional Park near Berkeley. It was built in the year 1911 C.E and is one of the few antique carousels left in the United States. It was constructed by the Herschel-Spillman Company of Tonawanda, New York and the carousel was used at amusement parks in San Bernardino, Ocean Beach, and Los Angeles. It was added to the National Registrar of Historic Places on September 29, 1976.
