Cottages in Napa, which is the biggest city in the county of Napa, are often more than 90 years old, which usually increases their valuable. Napa is a relatively young city. The city of Napa was laid out in 1847. By 1854 Napa had 40 buildings, most of which were rugged and built of wood. The streets were dirt, but the town was growing. By the early 1870s 7,000 people lived in Napa. The first vineyard was established in 1836. Today the Napa Valley has approximately 300 wineries, and the population is about 77,000.

Here people are sampling wine in the Napa Valley. Notice the huge redwood trees. They’re probably at least 150 years old.

Wine tasting at a Napa winery. Many of the wineries have tasting rooms where you just drop by and sample the wines.

 

08

Shopping in Yountville, which is a small town close to the town of Napa. The French Laundry, the name of a restaurant, is probably one of the best 50 or so restaurants in the world. If you want to eat at the French Laundry, you need to make reservations months and months ahead of time. Plus, you need to be prepared to splurge. You’ll be spending about $300 for one meal at the French Laundry.
