Pleasanton

Welcome to Pleasanton


Idyllic homes in a nostalgic community with access to San Francisco

A mere 40 miles from San Francisco by car, Pleasanton has long been a popular day-trip destination thanks to its friendly local community, beautiful outdoor spaces, and expansive fairgrounds. However, Pleasanton has far more to offer. Its quaint buildings, quiet streets, and nostalgic Americana vibe have resulted in an influx of permanent residents searching for their suburban dream home.

Enjoying year-round sunny weather, beautiful natural surroundings, and spacious homes with extensive gardens and yards, Pleasanton offers professionals, families, and individuals a chance to partake in the American dream of white picket fences, friendly neighbors, and children cycling through the streets. Originally part of two large ranches designated through Mexican land grants, the energetic city is now home to the headquarters of many large corporations, including Safeway, Ellie Mae, and Workday. 

The combination of excellent employment opportunities, high quality of life, and proximity to major Californian urban centers have transformed Pleasanton’s property market into one of the most desirable in Alameda County.

What to Love

  • Convenient access to San Francisco and San Jose
  • Expansive green spaces and beautiful public parks
  • Year-round sunny weather
  • Friendly, active community

Local Lifestyle


Pleasanton’s small-town atmosphere, despite its growing population, is one of its greatest appeals. The friendly, tight-knit community ensures every new resident is made welcome and quickly engaged in the many locally organized events. Although many Pleasanton residents work at one of the city’s numerous corporate headquarters, some commute to other cities and towns in the area. With several parks and outdoor recreational attractions, much of Pleasanton's lifestyle revolves around enjoying the weather and the beautiful natural landscape.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping


Pleasanton residents take great pride in their city’s entertainment and dining venues. Every Wednesday, Main Street is closed during the evening, allowing for a unique outdoor dining experience and blocking off cars to allow only walkthrough traffic. Right off Main Street lies one of Pleasanton’s hidden gems,
Cellar Door. This artsy wine bar is a hub of activity as residents gather to enjoy regional wines, craft beer, and locally sourced tapas with friends and family. The venue is directly across from the lovely Lions Wayside Park, which hosts annual summer concerts that bring even more residents to the streets to enjoy the warm evenings and star-studded skies.

Families and ice cream lovers will enjoy a visit to Meadowlark Dairy, which offers a unique drive-through service for all of your milk, cheese, and soft serve needs. And, should a more upscale dining experience be in order, Barone’s is the undisputed go-to for a delectable continental menu and live music while dining al fresco.

Things to Do


There is no shortage of things to do in Pleasanton, and this buzz of activity often draws day visitors from surrounding cities, especially to the
Alameda County Fairgrounds. Home to the annual county fair, visitors and residents can enjoy over two weeks of fair-themed fun, including carnival rides, food stalls, and live entertainment and music. For those who prefer to stay active outdoors, Ken Mercer Sports Park is a popular destination, featuring a running track, several baseball diamonds, batting cages, soccer fields, and a softball complex.

Firehouse Arts Center offers residents and their families a range of exciting activities and events, including a music and drama camp, an onsite art exhibition, and ballet recitals.

Schools


With access to an excellently rated school district, including the highly sought-after
