Napa is a great small town, but with a lot of growth over my life. When I was a child it was very small and not a whole lot to enjoy, but as an adult I've seen the county evolve into a major attraction with lots of business. Wine, food, shopping, nature- it's got it all!

I grew up in Napa county. I chose to come back to Napa county after college because of the incredible views and my amazing friends and family. I do not like how Napa has gone from small town to a more city feel which has made many small businesses shut down. We do not need anymore hotels or restaurants. We need more family friendly activities. Such as, indoor rollerblading, trampoline world, go cart racing, mini golf, etc.
Growing up Napa Valley is a great place live. It's a small town and for most of the time, it's a safe town. The problem all the money goes into the wine institute. Everything is overpriced, housing is another problem. All the locals that been living here for 10+ years have to start looking for a new place to live.
