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.

Skip the pretense of Napa and head to Livermore wine country. Over 50 wineries! Check out Garre's tasting room with small plate dining or dine at their restaurant after a visit to their tasting room. 3 Steve's Winery is a MUST stop. One of the Steve's is always there to visit and talk wine!

If you want to enjoy the brown California hills, this is great. Weather is usually warmer as well. Great natural beauty.

I have lived in Livermore for 20 years..the town has done a lot of growing in those twenty years..It went from 14 wineries to over 55 today...it also has several breweries for people who prefer beer to wine. Lots of restaurants downtown, two movies theatres, the Bankhead, lots of parks and trails. It should be on your list of next... More

I didn't visit the wineries, but the drive through winery row is amazing. Rolling green hills in the distance. Vineyards along the road. Why go all the way to Napa when the Livermore Valley is so close? If you're a wine enthusiast you must come here. Spend part of the day visiting the wineries then grab some food in downtown... More

I have posted reviews of Retzlaff and Concannon Wineries that two of our favorites. We have tasted at many other wineries and have never walked out without bottles of wine for our trip. YES, in other areas we have poured out our tasting samples and said thanks and good bye. My council to you, if you like/love good wine, go... More
