Want a nice mini weekend vacation?
Visit Calistoga, from Elk Grove, it's a 2 hour drive.

A dear friend named Debra Lynn Scott aka Dee Kee took me in her Mini - Cooper to this historic little town.  When we arrived, we checked in Room 224 of the Mount View Hotel & Spa.  This hotel has been around since 1914 and is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.  This landmark hotel combines the intimacy of a bed and breakfast with the luxury of a boutique hotel.

During our weekend stay, the various nightclubs that are a short walking distance from the hotel had many jazz bands playing their smooth somber rhythm & blues sounds that would echo in the serene Calistoga night.  Some of the nightclubs and bars that are a welcome spot for tourists are the Hydro Bar & Grill, Suzies and the Brewery. 

You will find a crowd of partying people that are a mixture of tourists and locals having a great time together.  Dee Kee and I lavished in the mud bath at our hotel and when we were finished, we ended it with a relaxing massage.  The hotel also provides a heated swimming pool and a luscious Jacuzzi in which tourists will take advantage of, before retiring into their quaint hotel room.  A taste of Mexico can be found in Calistoga at a restaurant called Taqueria Puerto Vallarta located at 1473 Lincoln Avenue in Calistoga. 

The food is authentic Mexican food that will completely satisfy the pallet.  A right mixture of spices and salsa to give a taste that you will never forget.  Dee Kee went to a local delicatessen near our hotel and picked up various types of vegetables, meats and we had a wonderful picnic at Pioneer Park and if you're into people watching, this is the perfect park for that.  The streets of Calistoga are filled with people that are checking out the souvenir shops, bookstores, and the various cafes.  If you want relaxation and fun, go to Calistoga.  If you want to dance and have a great time, go to Calistoga!  Calistoga is a hidden paradise in Napa Valley!
