No, it's not in the valley. This whole C-D talk of what a place feels like always amuses me. Even if it did "feel" like the valley (which it doesn't) that wouldn't mean it's part of the valley. A metro area isn't just one thing you know? A region of any size always feels like neighboring regions at it's edges.

Yeah the CV doesn't have Mount Diablo in the background or a lot of rolling hills. Concord is typical suburbia, but it's nothing like the CV- not even close

Concord is not typical suburbia, that would be danville. Concord has poor people.

Yes because wealthy people that live in million dollar + homes is "typical suburbia"

Concord is mostly middle class.

Again, please stop providing uniformed information about a place you do not live in and seem to have very little knowledge about as it's a disservice to people coming here looking for accurate information.

All homes in danville are millions of dollars? I think not. I own property there, paid 550k for a 3 bedroom home. Typical california suburb. Concord is like Riverside.

Treat Blvd near Walnut Creek has some amazing homes that are easily $1M +

Danville is one of the most EXPENSIVE zip codes in the East Bay. Several BILLIONAIRES live there

Mark Fitsburgh has ZERO clue as to what he's talking about.

Nobody said they were genius. But when the average listing price is over $1 million MANY of them are. And what year did you buy? 1990? And I'm not talking about townhomes or condo's either.

No, it's a wealthy enclave and anyone who lives in the Bay Area would know that. Again, please stop with your misinformation as you do this forum no good. You've clearly never set foot in Danville.

"Danville, located in the San Ramon Valley near Mount Diablo, is one of California’s top 25 wealthiest cities, and one of the wealthiest suburbs of Oakland and San Francisco...... Danville had a median income of more than $128,000 in 2009, according to the U.S. Census Bureau."

Oh yeah, that sounds like "typical suburbia"

Yeah I grew up in Walnut Creek and have spent a lot of time in both Danville and Concord and currently still do as I live in Pleasant Hill. Easily have about 20+ years experience with the immediate area. It's very frustrating having to deal with people who don't live here spew misinformation about the area.

Your 'opinion' is ill-informed. Comparing Concord to a place like Riverside shows how little you know about the area
