Review of Napa, California

Half the price of San Francisco and Silicon Valley
Star Rating - 5/20/2017
Napa is a very easy place to live, especially for those contemplating retirement. The pace of life is peaceful. The weather is superb -- never miserably cold or hot but varied enough to offer definite seasons. A town of 75000 people, it's easy to become a part of through community activities, clubs, churches, and interest organizations from American Association of University Women to Rotary International. There are several public as well as private golf courses, good fishing, biking and hiking. And much of the Valley's cultural and culinary offerings are located here or in the nearby towns of Sonoma, Yountville and St. Helena. There's always plenty to do and no huge push to do more than you want. It is relatively expensive compared to Midwest housing but inexpensive compared to Northern California's cities and Silicon Valley. So you have to calculate the trade-offs to live here. There will always be people who don't think the sacrifice is worth it, but just as many who think it definitely Napa is a treasure. Only you can decide.
