Livermore Valley is a beautiful place to visit with a lot of different activities to suit whatever you want to do, from the nice downtown area, Lake Del Valle, restaurants, wineries and breweries. I have lived here over 25 years and still enjoying it all. Beautiful event center and various social events.

The livermore valley with its vineyards and fine eating is a place you should make sure you stop there and check it all out. There's 1St. Street with all its fine dining establishments. Ten minutes away you have Del-Valle park and lake to the south and thirty minutes away to the north you have the Delta.

So much to do. History, science, outdoors, wine tasting, shopping, dining...... A little something for everyone. Combine all the experiences for a great escape from the Bay Area hecticn life or a stop-over for tourists.

Livermore is a really nice quite little town with everything you need and it's really close to Oakland Berkeley or San Francisco. There are a lot of wineries in the area and if you have the opportunity it's perfect to... More

Over 50 wineries and 8 microbreweries are in Livermore. Many city and regional parks are also here. Downtown Livermore has been and is being revitalized.

Go there often or not often enough, just love the wine county and want to settle there but it is little ways for me now but great alternate to Napa or Central coast if you want to avoid high cost, crowded and touristy places.

We had a fun Sunday doing wine tasting at several Livermore Valley Wineries. We also went to downtown First Street and saw the fountains, historic buildings, and restaurant area. Its a pleasant place to spend a Sunday afternoon in the summer. There is also a Totem Pole in Livermore in Centenniel Park. The totem pole was carved by Adam Nordwald.... More

I have spent 20 years, 12 living, and have seen much growth throughout this beautiful city. I enjoy the downtown, nightlife, ease of getting around and all around good living. The weather is hot during the summer, but overall good conditions.
