Perhaps because Kathy Petrino spends a lot of time traveling, she also loves to write about her travels, as a way of encouraging others to make the same trips, so those destinations thrive. Kathy is passionate about seeing everything in the world, but she also loves to share. She writes about every aspect of every trip, if only to make sure her readers avoid the occasional pitfalls that come with travel.
Among Kathy Petrino’s favorite travel destinations is the Napa Valley in California, a destination that has changed mightily over the years. A trip to the Napa Valley once meant heading “up-valley” to quaint little towns like Oakville, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga. Nowadays, while people still love those places, more often, they simply stay in downtown Napa, with its great hotels and top-of-the-line restaurants, great nightlife and more. The vineyards are beautiful and the wine is tasty, but there is so much more to see and do in Napa Valley. There are so many places to visit and so many sights to see, visitors often find it hard to choose.
