After a rousing and successful season in 2018, the Napa Valley Wine Train plans to re-launch its Hop Train for the summer and fall seasons. The Hop Train will take over the wine train to bring together beer lovers from across the region and nation.


Operated by the team from Napa Palisades Beer Company, the two-hour train journey will take place Monday nights from June 3 until the end of October.


Guests will be able to sample two free Napa Palisades pints, like the Loco IPA, the 1849 Gold Rush Red Ale or the Little Loco Session IPA, as well as snacks, as the train snakes through Napa’s scenic wine country. The train’s open-air car (a.k.a. the Vista Dome) allows passengers to soak in panoramic views of the vineyards, and on-board musical acts will provide entertainment throughout the evening.


Beyond the two free beers, guests will also be able to purchase more beer as well as wine and cocktails.


Tickets can be purchased on the Hop Train website for $80. The train departs every Monday starting at 6 p.m., and the price includes two pints of beer, entertainment and “bar bites.”

Top 5: Literary-Inspired Travel Destinations in Asia

Literature lovers have the chance to explore book settings across Asia with new itineraries available through Insight Guides. Where might your literary-inspired travels take you? Here are five designations Insight Guides recommends for literary inspiration in Asia.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.

Tuparka Infinity Scarf

Regardless of the temperatures outside, a scarf can be the perfect travel companion if the wind picks up, the sun comes out and you need a shield, you need to cover your shoulders to enter a religious house, or you travel to or through a Muslim country and you need to cover up for modesty. But not all scarves are created equal. In fact, some scarves are created solely for traveling.

Pack Your Bags, You’re Going to Tokyo!

All Nippon Airways (ANA) is the largest airline in Japan. With flights from the United States to Japan and all of Asia, it's the perfect airline to book your next trip with. From ANA's amazing in-flight food to its excellent customer service, it comes as no surprise ANA has been awarded five stars for its seventh consecutive year by the SKYTRAX World Airline Rating.
