This is an affluent suburb and the business reflect this: there are lots of restaurants, a wide variety of grocery stores (chain, Asian, gourmet, Trader Joes) and a stuff like ice cream shops and sporting goods stores. There also are a lot of family-owned businesses that have been here since I was born or longer. I always can find a place to eat and clothes and the regular mall and outlet mall have everything too.

There is almost no crime so the cops don't seem to have a lot to do. I think most of the bad stuff happens at the mall, and at the hotels, but it's from people who don't live here.
Pleasanton is a wonderful place to live and grow up. There are good schools, little crime, lots of

parks and trails, and the weather is mostly perfect.
