Napa

Napa is the seat of Napa County, California, in the heart of the Napa Valley wine region. Its downtown is known for late-1800s and early-1900s architecture, a riverfront promenade with shops and restaurants, and an arts scene anchored by the Napa Valley Opera House. The Oxbow Public Market houses a farmer's market and cheese shop, and the Napa Valley Wine Train visits area wineries via vintage Pullman cars.

Elevation: 20'

Climate:  Napa has a Mediterranean climate similar to many other parts of Northern California. Winters are chilly, and summers are warm. During the summer months rain is rare. Occasionally there may be a day or two of light rain in June and September. Heat waves do occur with the temperatures rising above 100°F on occasion. The fall is pleasant and many people come to visit Napa at this time. The rainy season is from October through April and occasionally into May. Snow is rare. 

Environment:  The Napa River traverses the city on its journey to the San Pablo Bay. The city has conducted a variety of waterfront development along the banks of the river, including certain fill operations governed by the United States Army Corps of Engineers regulations. The Napa River Flood Project has been in progress since the late 1990s, with the goal of mitigating the risk of flooding along a 6-mile stretch of the river and 1-mile of Napa Creek.
