Spring Break in Napa Valley

We decided to avoid all the busy places for our kid's spring break. I found a great deal on Groupon to visit Calistoga's Sunburst Hotel. I love the idea of not driving too far, but still feel like we are away. Below are some photos of our stay. The kids did not want to leave the 90 degree mineral water pool!

Napa Valley is much more than wine and romantic getaways for adults, it's also a great place for families. If you want to find more family friendly things to do and places to visit in Napa, the Chicago Tribune recently wrote a great piece here.

 Spring Break!
