Livermore is a suburban city in the East Bay region of the San Francisco Bay Area. Like its neighbor Pleasanton, it lies over the East Bay foothills in the Tri-Valley region, but just west of the Altamont Pass, which separates the Tri- Valley region from from the vast San Joaquin Valley.

Understand

Livermore has at least one claim to fame: it is home to the longest burning incandescent light bulb in the world. A light bulb that was installed at a local firehouse over 100 years ago is still burning today. For more information, see the Centennial Bulb Web site.

It is also home to two national laboratories, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory and Sandia National Laboratory. For more information, visit the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory or Sandia National Laboratory websites.
