• Love Lock Bridge

    On Napa’s Love Lock Bridge, a small pedestrian footbridge connecting the Wine Train’s station and boarding platform, couples from all over the world have left a piece of their love behind. You, too, can commemorate your bond when visiting the Wine Train. Simply, bring an everyday padlock, write the names of you and your partner on it, and clasp it onto the bridge. To keep this symbol unbroken, toss the key over the bridge or tuck it away for safekeeping.

The love lock practice is thought to have its origins in China, with a tradition of locking kindred souls together. Today, you’ll find many bridges worldwide, most famously in Paris, Cologne, and Seoul, where many tourists have participated in this romantic gesture. Whether you’re embarking on a Wine Train journey or just stopping by, take a moment to visit Napa’s Love Lock Pedestrian Bridge and leave an enduring token with someone special.
