Lodi is located just south of Sacramento and north of Stockton. To the west are the thousands of miles of waterways in the Sacramento River Delta, and to the east is the historic Gold Rush country of the Sierra Nevada foothills. The area enjoys mild winters and long, relatively rain-free summers, tempered by a 'Delta breeze' which comes in from the west, along the waterways, bringing welcome coolness from the Pacific Ocean.
As a result, local residents and visitors enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities in which to participate, from fishing and boating to skydiving, birdwatching, softball or soccer. In any season, there is always something fun and interesting to do in and around Lodi, for people of any age or background. And if that is not enough, Lodi is within easy day trip driving distance to the Mother Lode Gold Rush country, the Sacramento Delta, Lake Tahoe, Yosemite, Sacramento, Reno, San Francisco and Monterey.
All but hidden by expansive stretches of vineyards and miles of almond, cherry and walnut orchards, the area beckons travelers to discover Lodi and the Lodi wine country. Despite
California's rapid growth, Lodi has preserved its small town charm, offering visitors an easy
pace of life longed for by many.
