4 V I S I T T R I VA L L E Y.COM
Hello 2021! Who would have thought we’d feel so deeply
emphatic about changing the calendar to signal the end of
one year and ringing in the next? Even though 2020 was
certainly not what anyone expected, 2021 is bound to bring
some much-needed peace, and along with it, true inspiration
and freedom to travel once more.
I am the new CEO for the Tri-Valley’s destination marketing
and management organization. I had selected my
new hometown in January 2020 for its rural open-space
beauty, historic bud-breaking wine region and cutting-
edge innovation. What local doesn’t want to show off their
favorite unique and enticing Tri-Valley attribute? Who
knew I’d have to wait out the year for my own up-close
discovery as a recent transplant—but the anticipation has
been well worth it. As it turns out, I’ve come to learn that
the real beauty here is in the people—the resilient hospitality
workers and multi-city staff, helpful next-door neighbors
and smiling creative baristas, all proudly representing a
wealth of international diversity.
Come discover for yourself the true “Sunny Side of the
Bay” like a local. I’ll be looking for you. We’ll both have new
exciting stories to tell!
