Located in the middle of California’s Central Valley, Lodi is home to well over 66,000 residents and is known for its vineyards and wine grape production, notably its zinfandel. Every February, the annual Wine and Chocolate Festival comes to town. The city was founded in 1906, and is the birthplace of A&W Root Beer. Its city hall is located in Lodi’s pleasant, historic downtown.
