Over the past decade, Livermore has put a lot of effort into revitalizing downtown. We now have water fountains to play in on hot summer days, markets and events to draw people to the town center, a couple new theaters for live and on-screen drama or action, and even a new parking garage that can’t quite handle Livermore downtown’s bustling weekends.

The best thing about the growth of Livermore’s culture is by far the food. With around 200 restaurants, there is certainly something for everyone.

  • Feeling like a burger? Livermore has some of the best.
  • Longing for a burrito? Dozens of options.
  • Craving Thai? There are four to choose from.
  • Looking for something exotic? Well, I’m glad you asked.

When you take on a challenge to try every restaurant in town, it really gets you out of your comfort zone with the added bonus of experiencing some really great food.

That’s one of the reasons why I started this challenge. The second is to hopefully inspire others to get out and discover new places in Livermore too.

Now not every restaurant in Livermore is full of excitement and adventure. Part of the deal with trying every restaurant in town is to, well, try every restaurant in town. That includes the fast food joints that we all know quite well. Continue reading
