The Town of Moraga is the perfect retreat away from the city, nestled in the hills of Eastern San Francisco. I enjoy the small town charm with folks well-traveled!
Moraga is one of the safest places to live. We don't get a lot of outsiders because we're completely separated from the freeway. Unfortunately, our comfortability has been taken advantage of more and more in the last year. There has been an increase in car and house break-ins because people don't bother locking their doors!
