Livermore

This city in California’s bountiful wine country offers golf, wine tasting and a charming downtown area.

Just an hour’s drive east of San Francisco is this quaint mid-sized city with old-town charm. It sits on the border of the rich agricultural Central Valley.

Livermore is one of California’s oldest wine regions; that heritage continues today in its dozens of world-class wineries. Take a tasting tour to sample some of the best wines the state offers.

For a scenic day pairing history with wine tasting, hop aboard the vintage Niles Canyon Locomotive. This moving museum of the Pacific Coast Railway also provides transportation to area vineyards. Visit Livermore for one of the summertime wine festivals or special events. Play golf at one of the area’s top-quality courses: Las Positas, Poppy Ridge and The Course at Wente Vineyards.

Downtown Livermore is a lively area full of shops and top-quality restaurants. The town is the cultural hub of the region and is home to two cinemas, a performance theater and an open-air concert space. These venues attract world-class talents; attend one of the many classical concerts, operas, ballets and dance recitals held throughout the year. Join the local community’s active support of music and art.

Get fresh produce straight from area farms at the Livermore Farmers Market, held every Sunday at the Historic Train Depot. During the summer, the Farmers Market is expanded to an evening market in Carnegie Park. Both these events are accompanied by live performances by local talent.

Enjoy entertainment of a very different nature at the Livermore Rodeo in the Robertson Park rodeo grounds. It is one leg of the famed California 6-Pack Rodeo Circuit. Known as “the world’s fastest rodeo,” the June event claims to hold more rides per hour than any other rodeo. It began in 1918 as a way to raise funds for the Red Cross and has been held annually since then.

Livermore is a great destination for visitors of all ages. With its old-fashioned appeal, numerous events and area wineries, it offers plenty of variety to choose from.
