The three valleys from which the Tri-Valley neighborhood came to be are Amador Valley, Livermore Valley and San Ramon Valley. The region in the East Bay suburbs is well known for its Mediterranean climate, wine region, historic downtown areas, high cost of living and fine dining. It is a primarily affluent suburban residential area with multiple business parks.
At the nexus of highways 680 and 580, the Tri-Valley is a convenient destination for Bay Area residents and commuters with easy access to San Francisco from the Dublin and Pleasanton BART stations. Travelers can also get to Silicon Valley on the ACE train from Livermore, or a short drive across the Dumbarton or San Mateo bridges. The Tri-Valley area includes Walnut Creek, Danville, San Ramon, Dublin, Pleasanton and Livermore. The Tri-Valley is home to the Bishop Ranch and Hacienda business parks where companies like AT&T, Chevron, Oracle and Workday have offices. Tri-Valley is also home to almost a half-million Bay Area residents.
