Fodor’s – Calistoga is one of the Best Small Towns in America

Best Small Town in AmericaCalistoga is officially one of the best small towns in America according to a recent Fodor’s article. Living here for over 10 years, our family has long felt this was the case. Calistoga is full of character and has that small-town feel that is so hard to find nowadays. Major franchises have been banned from the city to maintain to unique quaintness. Lincoln Avenue is the main street and offers great shops, local artist studios, delicious restaurants, relaxing spas and so much more! We hope you can come and experience one of the best small towns in America for yourself. Our Calistoga inns are the best place to stay while exploring the area, and are centrally located at the head of Lincoln Avenue. Hope to see you soon!

Calistoga’s Famous Lighted Tractor Parade

Agricultural HeritageCalistoga’s lighted tractor parade is celebrating its 19th anniversary this year. Join us for this quaint small town tradition where we pay homage to the city’s agricultural heritage.

Tractors of all shapes and sizes will be dressed up with shining lights as they parade down the main street of Lincoln Avenue. It’s great fun for everyone and Santa even makes a special visit! (Pictures courtesy of the Tractor ParadeCalistoga Visitor Center.)


Our family loves this Calistoga tradition and we usually start off with a nice Hot Toddy to warm us up before the parade. Here is our favorite recipe.
