Livermore vacation rentals

Livermore is the gateway to the San Joaquin Valley

Livermore sits on the cusp of the San Joaquin Valley, spreading out between the hills that separate the San Francisco Bay from the vast agricultural plains of middle California. The result is an intriguing place that's part city and part backcountry. Head one way and you'll be flitting between bohemian beer bars and the famous tech firms of Silicone Valley. Head the other and you'll be tasting wines in the iconic Wente Vineyards, or wandering almond farms that stretch out as far as the eye can see. Livermore vacation rentals sit right in the middle of the lot.

Livermore is for foodies and adventurers

If you think for a moment that the uber-fertile reaches of the California Central Valley wouldn't have an effect on this pint-sized town on their northern fringes, think again. Farmers' markets come and go in the summertime, offering foodies the chance to taste super-fresh fruits and local wines. There are also cellar doors to taste California whites and reds, or beer breweries which harness the hipster energy of San Fran to produce their own tasty craft. Adventurers have their fair share of draws too, whether that's underground mineshafts or undulating stretches of hills for hiking through.

There are wineries galore in Livermore

By some estimations there are as many as 40 wineries in the Livermore area alone. They range from the uber-famous Wente Vineyard – a registered state landmark and one of the oldest family wineries in America – to the centuries-old Concannon Vineyard, both of which are worth a visit. It's also true that most Livermore vacation rentals have prime access to the beautiful Del Valle Regional Park, where kayaking courses and swimming spots give way to the Eagle Crest Trail and other famous walking routes on the edge of San Joaquin.

Follow the wine harvest to Livermore

Ask any of Livermore's wine growers and cellar door patrons and they’ll say the best time to visit this town of bubbling whites and vintage reds is the mid to late summer. That part of the year is riddled with harvesting festivals, farmer's markets, and oodles of other wine-related events. And it also just so happens to be one of the most beautiful seasons to go in search of Livermore vacation rentals; when the Cali hills glow green and brown, and there's life in the undulating grape fields.

Entering the Central Valley in Livermore

Livermore occupies a unique place where the rugged hills and mountains that enfold California's huge Central Valley finally stoop low to offer access to the Pacific Coast and the San Francisco Bay Area. The result is a town enfolded by undulating hills and blankets of vineyards, and one with oodles of great outdoors opportunities. Canyons drop through the ridges of the Ohlone Regional Wilderness to the south, boaters explore the lake waters of Del Valle, and a whopping 87,000 acres of protected landscape exists just a little further afield, where the Henry W. Coe State Park hides mountain lions and elks.
