Arts in April Month

Calistoga California


I am a fan of dashing about, finding a bit of beautiful in a different destination.  One of the destinations I adore is Calistoga.  It is NorthNapaValley, and home to a relaxing and charming main street, wonderful restaurants, quaint shops, and varied accommodation offering comfort to all.


My favorite things to do in Calistoga include driving up 29 to one of the look outs (be careful) and snapping photos of the entire valley.  A similar effect can be had with a glorious balloon ride above the valley floor, but you have to wake up extra early for that.


This month, Visit Calistoga has a contest running, where you can win a getaway to Calistoga including two nights in a king suite at the Sunburst Calistoga, you can take in the mud at the Mount View Hotel and Spa’s spa (a mud body and face painting) dinner for two at 1226 Washington Street and Dinner for two at Barolo, plus lunch at Boskos Trattoria and Brunch at Brannans Grill.

For the full list and rules for this contest please visit 


This is not a Talk910 Contest, but something I found on line, and entered – so ENTER and beat me out!
