Calistoga

Tucked into the base of Mount St. Helena at the northernmost tip of Napa Valley lies Calistoga, a bedroom community of 5,000 people with the rustic charm of a 19th century western town. Long a destination of health seekers because of its hot springs rich in volcanic minerals, Calistoga is home to many spas that offer a host of healing therapies, including a signature Calistoga experience — the mud bath! Downtown Calistoga is lined with eclectic shops, fine dining establishments, and the vibrant Arts Walk. Compact and bikeable, this amiable town offers world class wining and dining, yet is known for its casual, laid back feel. That’s probably why it is consistently a favorite with both locals and travelers alike.
