Surrounded by vineyards and golden hillside, the Livermore area excels in natural beauty.
Less than an hour’s drive from the city of San Francisco, the community has managed to retain its rural atmosphere for many decades. The shift from a ranching and farming community into a leading employment center occurred when the surplus naval base was revitalized into the internationally acclaimed Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in 1852. A few years later, the city welcomed Sandia National Laboratory, which spurred a flood of new residents and high-tech businesses.
Despite the cosmopolitan nature of the research laboratories and related companies, the area enjoys an ideal microclimate for growing grape varietals like sauvignon blanc and cabernet. Lovely vineyards have graced the valley since the mid 1800’s, drawing locals and visitors to their tours, tastings and colorful special events.
Livermore offers a general aviation airport, recreation centers, senior centers, golf courses, lush local parks and horse arenas. Lake Del Valle Regional Park is ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities and sports. Hiking, biking, fishing, boating, swimming, windsurfing, horseback riding, picnicking, studying nature and camping are common pastimes in this panoramic park.
