California Somerset/Pleasanton Meadows Reviews

I love Pleasanton. It's older, which makes it very cute, especially downtown. I love the old-fashion vibes I get each time I visit other parts of Pleasanton. My favorite parts of Pleasanton occur in the summer. The Alameda County Fair brings people from all over the bay area to Pleasanton to enjoy the amenities the fair has to offer. Also, the concerts in the park are amazing because people can come together to appreciate good music, food, and wine. Also, Pleasanton has their own dairy, which makes the best ice cream. Pleasanton provides people with such a classic feeling that they can't get in any other city.

Pleasanton has presented me countless opportunities the have truly shaped who I am. Between the social atmosphere of my neighborhood, to the excellent schools, Pleasanton has been the perfect place to grow up. The one negative thing I would have to say is that Pleasanton lives in its own bubble. As in you don't get a sense of life in the real world outside of Pleasanton. That said, when it comes time for me to have kids, I would want to move back to Pleasanton to raise them. It is one of the safest and most beautiful places to live in the country and I can see it staying that way in the future.
People who live in Pleasanton live here for a very long time. Pleasanton, for the most part, isn't a city where you just live there for a few years. People who live here stay long enough to become apart of the community and contribute to events and organizations. Everyone enjoys participating in the Christmas parade or Halloween walks/learning about the ghosts of Pleasanton. Everyone enjoys keeping traditions going to make the next residents feel welcome.
