Walnut Creek is an older city, and by extension is much more accessible due to its BART station. Danville is a sleepy suburb sandwiched between Walnut Creek (BART, regional shopping center) and San Ramon (Bishop Ranch business park). The homes are bigger and there isn't much diversity in the residents (some might see that as a good thing). SRVUSD is a very good school district, although some of Lamorinda's schools give it a run for the money.

The closer you are to San Fran, the higher the prices.

Default BART station adds value

simple as that. I would choose Walnut Creek for more commercial conveniences, but depends what you are looking for. We have friends in Danville with kids, big house, nice schools & playgrounds, but the restaurants, etc are in Walnut Creek.

Danville is a rich suburb whereas Walnut Creek is an upper middle class suburb.

It shouldnt be too difficult to comprehend.
