The jewel in the crown of Napa County just might be St. Helena. Home to grand vineyard estates that sit behind gated drives and rows of olive trees, St Helena offers the ultimate in Napa Valley lifestyle: tranquility, relaxation, and refined recreation among its vineyard views.
A fabulous main street, restaurants, spas, and shops are a magnet for tourists. There's a strong local community feel here as well, with family film festivals, farmers markets, and Cheers! -a community social event that fills Hunt Avenue and Adams Street downtown with jugglers, bands, and tastings from more than 100 wineries. Many of the town's historic buildings have been preserved and turned into specialty food purveyors, galleries, and restaurants. Shopping at Goodman's Department Store on Main Street with its ornate Queen Anne's facade is a throwback to a simpler time.
All those world class restaurants in St. Helena have to hire there chef's from somewhere, and to fill that need, the Culinary Institute of America, located in the 100 year old former Christian Brothers Winery, trains the next generation of chef's and sommeliers. The Culinary Institute offers hour-long cooking demonstration for local residents, along with full-time professional-level courses.
12-acre Crane Park on the outskirts of town is home to St. Helena's Farmers Market, along with picnic sites, 8 lighted bocce courts and 6 lighted tennis courts.
