How to Explore Livermore on Your Weekend Getaway From San Jose

Where to Stay

Comfortable lodging is the cornerstone of an unforgettable getaway. Livermore Valley is one of the best towns to stay in and has many lodging options for different types of travelers. Consider staying at the Purple Orchid for a personalized lodging experience.  

Our resort has 10 suites, each luxuriously appointed with only the finest amenities. All of our rooms have amazing views from the windows, porches, or just by stepping outside. We also have a premium, on-site spa that books appointments even if you’re not staying with us.

Wineries & Breweries  

Livermore’s claim-to-fame is that it’s the state’s oldest wine country. Like fine wine, we get better with age!. We’ve always had wine here, but in the last decade, we’ve seen some of the best Livermore breweries emerge. The craft beer scene in our area has taken off so much that the Tri-Valley area has outlined a beer trail for visitors and locals alike to sip through.

Tried and true wine enthusiasts won’t be disappointed, either. Livermore has a long history of winemaking. There’s truly no better place to experience wine that in Livermore. That’s because we know the soil, grapes, fermentation process, and fun! Do more than just drink wine on your getaway from San Jose. Become a wine expert and create your perfect bottle at a wine blending class. Or, sip your way around our Wine Country on a wine trolley tour.
