15 of Napa Valley's Most Luxurious Spots for a Bachelorette Party
Not every bride-to-be wants a bachelorette party in a bustling city with a busy nightlife scene. If your biggest requirement for pre-wedding party is total relaxation, sunshine, and great wine, then look no further than Napa Valley. Without a nightclub or casino in site, you'll be able to sip back and relax in serious style.
Considering heading to Northern California with your bridal party? Enjoy the sunshine, beautiful backdrops, and incredible vineyards by day, then hang out at a luxurious retreat by night.
