Looking for your next romantic getaway? The Tri-Valley is the hidden gem of Northern California destinations, perfect for couples who want to relax and rejuvenate or explore a new area. Visit more than 50 wineries, dine out at our award-winning restaurants, hike through our rolling hills, stay in for a relaxing day at the spa, or hit our downtowns to catch a show or enjoy a fun night out.
The Livermore Valley Wine Country is a unique and long-standing California wine region that dates back to the 1760s. As one of California’s oldest wine regions, Livermore Valley wineries were the first to bottle varietals labeled Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Petite Sirah. With more than 50 wineries to taste and tour, a trip for two to the Livermore Valley Wine Country can be quite intoxicating. Rent electric bikes from Pedego and cruise through the vineyards in-between tastes, or hop on the Livermore Valley Wine Trolley for a day of authentic California wine tasting.

The Tri-Valley lives at the foot of Mt. Diablo State Park and is surrounded by lush rolling hills. Make a day-trip to Mt. Diablo’s summit for some of the best visibility in the world. On clear days, visitors can soak up panoramic views of the entire SF Bay Area, Lassen Peak, and Half Dome. Visiting during warmer months? Head over to Lake Del Valle Regional Park for miles of interconnected trails, scenic lakeside views, and swimming areas if you want to take a dip!
