Discovering the Lodi area means tasting wine and exploring one of the Central Valley’s most charming downtowns.

And it means much more.

In Lodi, you’ll find a bucolic regional park, Lodi Lake, where locals and visitors alike enjoy strolling, fishing and picnicking. You’ll find a history museum and a stylish gallery displaying some of the best art in West.

Walk downtown, and you’ll see the work of the so-called “wall dogs” a band of talented artists who invaded with paint and brush and left the central district uniquely decorated.

And you’ll find a September tradition, the Lodi Grape Festival, that might have leapt from a Norman Rockwell painting.

Discovering the Lodi area also means exploring nearby towns and attractions.

In Locke, you’ll find a Chinese museum and a place that serves some of the juiciest steaks around.

In Rio Vista, you’ll find a Delta hub with eateries, shops and a bucolic riverfront park. Plus a landmark restaurant and bar featuring a unique collection of hunting trophies, including a rhino and elephant.

In Thornton, you’ll find an annual festival that features bloodless bullfighting.

Not far from Lodi, Micke Grove Park features a zoo and an historical museum that includes amazing farm machines and vintage buildings. Also in the park is a Japanese garden, perfect for a moment of reflection or refreshment.

So thank you for coming to Lodi. We hope you find it the perfect place to experience food and drink, to explore a unique downtown — and much more.
