What's Your Favorite Napa Staycation?

In this week's contest, we're looking for the best ways to enjoy some free time in our own back yard. Got a suggestion to add to our list? Tell us in the comments and we'll include it in the contest.

Tourists from all over the world flock to Napa on their vacations. Well, we locals kind of like the place, too. In this week's contest, we're looking to find out how Napans enjoy Napa when we have a little free time to spend in our "destination" home town.

Here are the nominees for this week's Reader's Choice Award; as always, if we've missed something, please tell us in the comments and we'll add it ASAP.

And of course, if there's anything else you want to say on the topic, we welcome your comments below. Because this poll is about more than individual listings, your comments are extra-important!

Have fun showing some love for your favorite spot, not only with a poll vote (one per reader, please) but by leaving a great review and a positive rating on their Patch Directory page. Just click the highlighted names below to see the directory page for each place in the contest.

The poll goes away after a few days, but the positive reviews and ratings stay forever — plus they count heavily in the contest judging!

So if you love one (or more) of our contestants, be sure to leave a rating and a review. 

And if you own or manage one of the businesses in our contest, please be sure to "Claim" your listing: This allows you to customize the information that appears on our site, and to thank your loyal customers for the five-star ratings they give you.

Because this poll is not scientific, it is not the sole consideration in choosing a winner. The winner will be determined by the Patch editor, based on poll results, comments and reviews on the listings in our directory. Leave reviews for as many listing as you wish, but please vote only once per survey, per Patch. Complete contest rules are attached.
