We have had a great experience living in Concord! We feel like our community is safe. Our private high school is located in Concord. We are close to several cities, and don’t find ourselves having too many problems with traffic during commute.

Nice city - has a lot amenities for shopping, playgrounds, schools, churches, for families/singles. The city is a major regional suburban East Bay center within the San Francisco Bay Area, and is located just 31 miles east of San Francisco,
22 miles northeast from Oakland, 65 miles southwest of Sacramento, and 51 miles north of San Jose. Good driving to many different attractions -San Francisco, Lake Tahoe/Reno, and Northern California/Central California.
I love the city of Concord. Prior to moving over here from San Francisco, I did some research on the city itself. It has low crime rate, a lot of parks and family themed play areas and so many beautiful outdoors areas to enjoy all four seasons. In addition to the greenery, the city of Concord is so racially diverse. This was an important factor to me as I would like my family to have great exposure to varies ethnicities and cultures. I also love that Concord is up and coming and have so many delicious new restaurants and shopping. There are new home developments in Concord making it a suitable and diverse city. I am very happy I made the move to Concord. I very much so enjoy living here every day.
