Just north of Sao Paulo Bay and the Bay Area, the city of Napa is part of the famed Napa Valley. Near Interstate 80, Napa is just off Route 29, north of Vallejo. Although the name "Napa" makes people around the world think of California's excellent wine region, the city of Napa is also well-known for Queen of the Valley Medical Center, Napa Valley College, Napa County Airport as well as its stellar parks, golf courses, shopping areas and dining. Homes for rent in Napa can give families a chance to live in a cultural center, a great community and unique region.
Fun Facts for Future Renters
One of the reasons why the Napa Valley is great for growing grapes is also why it's a wonderful place to live - the climate! The average low temperature in the winter is 37 degrees. In the summer, the high is 82 - a far cry from the desert-like conditions in the south.
Napa was founded in 1847 and was popular two years later as the Gold Rush swept through the area. Although the valley has become famous for its wine, Napa has long been known for its quality leather goods and successful tanneries.
