WELCOME TO OUR NEIGHBORHOODS
A quick primer on our extraordinarily well-located towns.
V I S I T T R I VA L L E Y.COM 5
With its specialty shops, art galleries, wine bars and booming restaurant
scene, Danville’s charming downtown combines nostalgia with modern
sensibilities. Venture away from the hub, and you’ll find that Danville
is also home to Tao House (the onetime residence of playwright Eugene
O’Neill, where his plays live on during the annual Eugene O’Neill Festival in
September), along with numerous hiking trails, parks and open spaces.
The second-fastest-growing city in California, Dublin is bursting with
appealing restaurants, shops, nightlife and activities. It has the only IMAX
movie theater in the Tri-Valley and a wealth of other recreational opportunities,
including golf, bowling, laser tag, ice-skating, go-kart racing, and
even a water park and trampoline park. There’s history here, too: Witness
Dublin’s annual St. Patrick’s Day Festival, which celebrates the Irish heritage
of the city’s founders.
LIVE IT UP IN LIVERMORE
California’s oldest wine-growing region, Livermore remains a world-class
destination with dozens of wineries—most of which have been family owned
and operated for generations. Livermore is
not just for wine aficionados, though: The San
Francisco Premium Outlets (with 180 namebrand
stores) and a lively downtown make the
city an attraction for avid shoppers as well.

THE PLEASURES OF PLEASANTON
With 1,200 acres of parks, open space and
trails, Pleasanton invites visitors and locals
alike to head outdoors and take in the sights
of the Tri-Valley—though there’s no shortage
of indoor activities to enjoy as well. Shopaholics
can browse Stoneridge Shopping Center
and Pleasanton’s downtown boutiques,
while food lovers have their choice of more
than 220 different restaurants, cafes, dessert
bars and more. Performances at the Firehouse
Arts Center entertain year-round.
