Moraga Reviews

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!

Very boring, little to no activity. Great if you're really rich and can afford the expensive houses here. Not great if you're looking for a bustling town. Great if you like the small town vibe.
The nightlife is very tame. Sex and alcohol are abundant at house parties but the town is otherwise almost prudish and practically dry. Local restaurants are nothing special but provide simple pleasures such as burgers and Chinese takeout. Nations is probably the biggest culinary attraction with its "world's biggest burgers", a personal favorite.
