A Thousand Oaks and Even More to Do
Just 29 miles east of San Francisco is the welcoming town of Concord, CA. Its proximity to Oakland and San Francisco means that Concord has all that one would expect from the big city but without the crowds and traffic. What’s more, Concord sits just south of Sonoma County and the Napa Valley so, you are perfectly positioned to visit California’s wine country as well. Being set among the beautiful California hills, Concord has amazing open spaces including Mount Diablo and Mount Tamalpais. Amazing views, hiking trails and mountain biking routes are all just a short drive away. Getting to the area’s other cities is simple from Concord, with quick access to San Francisco, Oakland and Berkeley. And with Sonoma and Napa Counties just to the north, Concord is the perfect place to set off on day trip through California’s premier wine producing region. Golfers visiting Concord will be pleased to know that Diablo Creek Golf Course is right in town and has 18 challenging holes, a large practice green and a lighted driving range.
During the hot summers, stopping by Water World California with its waterslides, wave pool and relaxing cabanas is a great idea, especially with the kids. At Concord’s Sleep Train Pavilion, concerts, shows and events take place throughout the year. World-renowned artists such as Smashing Pumpkins, Kelly Clarkson and Santana have all performed at this outdoor venue. Downtown Concord has a wonderful downtown that is lined with authentic ethnic eateries, local galleries and fun shops. One of the best ways to see downtown is by taking a Concord Historic Walking Tour that brings guests by 28 historical places that each have significance in the town’s history. When it’s time to shop, stop by one of the two well-appointed shopping centers at Sun Valley Mall and the Willows Shopping Center both have major retailers and local boutiques.
