We did the Livermore wine and food pairing trolley and stopped here. Great choice of wines we tasted. Loved their petite Sirah. Staff were great and knowledgeable about the history of the specific wines.

Livermore Valley

Next to Napa and Sonoma, this is the "quieter" wine region of California.

Reviewed By Nadeem835 - Livermore, United States

Livermore have a lovely downtown area, perfect for a lazy afternoon with local shops, restaurants. Outside of town is one of the best outlet malls in the entire bay area, and south of town are some great wine country event centers and wine tasting places. Its a great place to visit and even nicer to place to live.

Del Valle Regional Park

Reviewed By JKW3 - Livermore, United States

We spent 4 nights here in February, and it was so quiet and peaceful. It's a nice, green campground with plenty of space between sites. There's a big grassy area in the center of the loop we were in, and wild turkeys paraded around it daily. We have a 40' motorhome, and it was a little cozy driving through the loop, but it was do-able. We had site #24, and it was perfect. It was a nice, long pull-thru; I think it was 90'.

Sycamore Grove Regional Park

Reviewed By 2raqholt - Livermore, United States

During late fall, my daughter, her two sons of 5 and 3 (very active grandsons!), and I went to Sycamore Grove. It was a gorgeous day, and the park was beautiful with the changing colors of the big leaves of the sycamore trees. It was good to follow the paved pathway and go over the nice wooden bridge. Off the bridge, we went down below and the two young ones had so much fun throwing rocks onto the stream to make the biggest splash and ripples. Moving on we found this great sycamore tree. One of its very large branch drooped down to the ground. It was perfect for the boys as they clambered up and down having much fun. This park is perfect for family outings, for taking walks,including your dog, for picniking, and for meditating. It is lovely in any season!! Note: There is a small fee using your cedit card to enter.

Brushy Peak Regional Preserve

Reviewed By louisf691

This is a regular hike for me being just a short distance (10 mins) from downtown Livermore. The best times are spring, fall and a sunny winter's day. You can do the loop via the col between the two peaks. It's about a 3 mile loop with a 600 foot gain in elevation. Take water as there is no potable water available. You get great views across Livermore towards the Del Valle hills, Morgan territory and Mont Diablo. Enjoy!
