"Nice Suburb"

I've heard about Livermore being a dull, boring town that is barely in the Bay Area and not worth living in, but I have to say that I was quite happy. While others may see it as a dull suburb, Livermore is actually a reasonable affordable residential area that gives its residents the benefits of living in the desirable Bay Area. It is almost like the "real life" alternative to Northern California in a sense.

This is not to say that it doesn't have its own unique perks. The weather actually gets hot in the summer and feels like summer - it is not stifling like Sacramento, but is rather a friendly reminder of what season it is. Traffic on Vallecitos Road is low-key, and while the town is populated by strip malls, the road passes by Livermore's best feature - the wineries. While Vallecitos is not the main winery drag, it does intersect with Vineyard Avenue and is home to Fenestra Winery.

It may not be downtown Napa, but it does have some things going for it.
  • Nice, affordable homes
  • Reasonable traffic
  • Rolling hillside scenery
  • A full hour from San Francisco
  • Extreme temperatures
  • Kind of a boring city
