Whether you're planning a family trip, a romantic getaway, or a friends weekend in Lodi, we don't expect you to know everything you want to do, and where you can find it. That's why we have visitor resources available to you 24/7 on VisitLodi.com, but what are the really important, and sometimes, underutilized resources that you NEED to know about?
We put together a couple of critical items to help you start planning your memorable stay in Lodi Wine Country!
One of the most important parts of the pre-planning process is where you're going to call home base and lay your head down at night. Sure places like Hotels.com, Airbnb and Expedia seem like great places to search for those accommodations, but it doesn't show you ALL the properties available.
But on VisitLodi.com, it does! Browse all of the lodging options available in one convenient website and not have to juggle six tabs to figure out which hotels, motel, bed and breakfast, vacation rental or RV Park is right for your trip, and your budget. With convenient links to each property, it's easy to identify the type of accommodation you are looking for and get an idea on if it's in the area you want to be located in.
Your comfort is of utmost concern to us, and we know, whatever property you choose, we'll afford you the comforts of home that will help elevate your stay here in our wine country!
Downtown Visitor Center
Of course, our visitor center in Downtown Lodi on School Street is a HUGELY essential and vital resource for any and all visitors. While we have some Lodi merch for sale, one thing you won't get is pushy salesman trying to convince you to go here, or here. Our sole purpose in Lodi is to ensure your good time!
That's why we're open daily (except major holidays) from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ready to assist you with any question you may have, or provide the information you need. Our Downtown Visitor Center is on 25 N. School Street, just south of the movie theatre and conveniently next to four tasting rooms and a cheese shop! Stop by and say hi, and ask questions! That's what we're here for!
Now if you can't make it into the shop because you're too busy having fun, but think of a question, there are plenty of ways to get in touch with us. Give us a call at 209-365-1195 or shoot us a message on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter and we'll make sure we get you an answer!
Going hand in hand with the last resource is our yearly Visitor Guide, which is also available online by clicking here, or at the Downtown Visitor Center. They are absolutely FREE, and they are here for your use. The guide is a terrific overview of all there is to do in Lodi. It has information on restaurants, lodging, wineries, outdoor activities and so much more.
Still in the pre-planning process? We'll also send you a hard copy of the guide to your address for free! So if you aren't a fan of those fandangled computers, just submit a request and we'll send one out your way!
Although we'd love to have you stop by our place and pick up a guide, you can also pick up our guides all across town. A perfect place to find them is at the wineries, so you can do a little sippin' and then do a little searchin' through the guide for your next activity!
Wine Trail Map
No visit to Lodi Wine Country is complete without picking up a Lodi Wine Trail Map from our good friends at Lodi Wine! They produce this vital piece of literature that gives you a glimpse of the Lodi wine scene in Downtown Lodi, and throughout the appellation!
This is a MUST for any and all wine tourists. The map allows you to really plan your trip and not only hit all the wineries you had on your list at the start of the trip but all the recommendations that come from the new friends you'll meet in Lodi during your adventure! Plus, it also allows you to discover some of those wineries you didn't have on your list, but because of proximity to something you may have planned earlier, you hit it up and find out how amazing it is!
And this is all possible due to the Lodi Wine Trail Map. You can pick these up at the Downtown Visitor Center, the Lodi Wine & Visitor Center located in Wine & Roses Hotel and at many of the wineries across the appellation.
Perhaps you're looking less at Lodi wine country, but looking more at Lodi country roads!
Cycling is part of our DNA, and for a good reason. There are plenty of flat routes that either has bike lanes or lack the heavy traffic you'd find in the Bay Area or Southern California. In fact, there'll be times where it'll be you, the vines and the sun beaming down upon you both on the road at any given time. That's it.
You won't be in this alone! Your trip to Lodi isn't just important to you, your family and your friends that are coming along, it's also important to us! It's our job to help make your stay in Lodi a memorable one, so don't hesitate to ask for help!
