Danville

Welcome to Danville


Enjoy a luxury lifestyle in the “Heart of the San Ramon Valley”

Somewhat resembling a town stuck in time, Danville’s streets overflow with historic charm and intrigue. From the perfectly preserved Museum of the San Ramon Valley to the unmistakable Americana ambiance, with American flags flying high and laughing children biking through the leafy streets, life in Danville is unlike any other town or city in the region. Walkable, quaint, and filled with hole-in-the-wall cafés and bars to discover, Danville residents do not need to travel far to find entertainment or world-class dining opportunities.

Located along Interstate 680, and with San Francisco only a 30-minute drive away, Danville residents can enjoy the best of both the small-town lifestyle and the allure of the big city and bright lights. Initially used for grazing land, the town was known for its agricultural streak, which was especially encouraged by the arrival of the Southern Pacific Railroad.

What to Love

  • Easy access to San Francisco and San Jose
  • Incredible natural beauty
  • Beautifully designed and built homes on large property lots
  • Lively downtown and historical regions

Local Lifestyle


Thanks to Danville’s energetic downtown neighborhood, most town residents choose to entertain themselves and eat at the many locally-owned cafes, bars, and restaurants. Although many Danville locals commute to work in San Ramon or nearby cities, most have a great sense of civic pride in their community. People in Danville take special pleasure in its nostalgic Americana vibes, a rare dynamic at a time when modern or contemporary design and lifestyles are all the rage.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


Downtown Danville is undoubtedly the town’s social epicenter. With numerous restaurants, independent stores, and bars lining the streets, residents are spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing a venue for an afternoon or a night on the town.
Locanda Ravello is a local staple that serves an innovative Mediterranean menu, although the friendly service and outgoing waiters is another major draw. The Grille at Blackhawk is another excellent choice if American comfort food and a laidback atmosphere are in order.

And, for all your Italian food cravings, no one does it better than Piatti. Located in the Danville Livery Shopping Center, the open kitchen and trattoria-style venue offer matchlessly elegant outdoor dining and mouthwatering pizzas from a stone-hearth oven. The center also hosts several brands, independent stores, and cafés, including Cold Stone Creamery, East Bay Flower Company, and the Danville Interior Design Gallery.

Things to Do


Danville is known to be a hub of community-organized events and activities. A definite highlight is the popular
Danville Hot Summer Nights Hot Rod and Classic Car Show, where car fanatics and social butterflies can enjoy the sight of dozens of classic cars accompanied by live music, dancing, and a range of gourmet food vendors. Blackhawk Plaza also hosts beloved Friday night concerts dubbed “Rock the Plaza.” Featuring a variety of shows, from Prince tributes to ‘80s rock concerts, the summer concert series is a favorite among Danville residents. 

And, for diehard Halloween enthusiasts, the annual Halloween Costume Party at the Blackhawk Museum is sure to be a yearly highlight and a great excuse to dress up and partake in some spooky fun.
