California’s rural haven
Situated on the eastern outskirts of the San Francisco Bay area, Livermore is the largest of the three California cities that make up the state’s Tri-Valley area. Dating as far back as the 1760s, wine has been an enormous part of Livermore’s history and culture, making it one of the oldest wine regions in the United States. With vino running deep through its roots, Livermore is aptly coined “Wine Country” and is home to over 50 of some of the nation’s most impressive wineries. It has also continued to shape the city’s development as the vineyard-painted landscape has retained Livermore’s rural charm through the decades.
With a history as deep as its wine selection, it’s no wonder that Livermore has grown to be a well-established suburban area that attracts families of all kinds. But don’t let the wine blur things; there’s more to Livermore than meets the vine. With an equally impressive scientific record, Livermore also makes an excellent home for young professionals and entrepreneurs. The streets that don’t lead to a winery are lined with various housing styles ranging from newer, large homes on smaller plots to older, smaller homes on larger lots with condominiums and duplexes.
Established around the city’s wine-friendly climate, Livermore has retained many traditions rooted in the same farming and ranching practices that helped make the area what it is today. With a fruitful landscape like the ones found along the west coast, neighbors often support one another, and there is a strong sense of communal camaraderie. Between the scenic views and central location, Livermore’s popularity has lent itself to cultivating an amenity-rich suburb where there is always plenty to do and explore.
Livermore is home to some of the most refined and historically enriched tastes, with vineyards as old as the city itself. Experience over five generations of wine growing and expertise by visiting the Wente Vineyard Tasting Lounge, one of California’s first-ever tasting rooms. Have your wine and family time too at Concannon Vineyard, BoaVentura de Caires Winery, or any other options that offer lawn space and things to keep the kiddos busy. More of a brewery type? First Street Ale House works hard to give you a beer-based option that’s just as impressive. Grab a seat at Sauced BBQ & Spirits for some southern comfort and cocktails. Simply Fondue is anything but simple, with an impressively long list of bites and beverages.
Downtown Livermore is another popular go-to where you’ll find more movies, music, and shopping options than you could ever need. This hub is also a frequent venue for special events like Livermore's Farmers Market, where the community gathers to support local growers and creators. Connect with nature and enjoy Livermore’s open spaces like Sycamore Grove Park, which are dedicated to providing acres full of hiking, biking, and exploring. Whether you like to sip through your day, immerse yourself in culture, or become one with nature, Livermore is sure to have just the right thing for you.
With over 50 wineries located within Livermore city limits, endless entertainment options are right in your backyard. Evening in Vineyards Concert Series is a popular summertime favorite that locals look forward to over at the Las Positas Vineyards. The Livermore Downtown Street Fest is an annual celebration of the city's best, where you can indulge in all the things people love most about Livermore. Livermore Rodeo, once created out of necessity, has grown to become the World’s Fastest Rodeo and a cornerstone of the Tri-Valley community.
Livermore is served by Livermore Valley Joint Unified School District.
