It shouldn't even take you that long. Yeah you still know nothing about the Bay Area, so please stop providing misinformation on this forum like you constantly do. People come here for accurate information, not BS.

Just because I said it takes 20 minutes and you said 15 doesn't mean it's misinformation. Please stop trolling for an argument.

You also said it looks and feels like the Central Valley, which it doesn't. Just pointing out how you don't live here and don't know the area, like I said people come here for accurate information from people who actually live here.

Concord is what it is & some don't like it but it isn't the Central Valley. It's an outer east bay suburb. Concord is much more similar to parts of the City of LA's San Fernando Valley than the Central Valley. As far as it being far, it all depends on where you are trying to go to. It is not that far from SF, Berkeley, or Oakland - especially compared to the distances and factoring in traffic in LA County. Ignore the inaccurate information. Googlemaps will tell you the distance & time wherever you want to go.

Concord and Central Contra Costa County is generally much nicer than the San Fernando Valley-which in many ways more similar to the Central Valley.

You must keep in mind that if you take the car out of first gear you will go faster!

I can drive from Lafayette and be in Concord in less than 10 minutes.
