livermore has a nice one right now. But the traffic is a nightmare at times.
Agreed. Livermore has done a wonderful job of taking a run down, ugly, nothing of a downtown area and turning it into a fun and energizing place. There are plenty of clubs, bars, restaurants, a couple of movie theaters, and a performing arts center for live productions.

They also have a multi story parking garage that I always head to first that way I don't get stuck in main street traffic.

I think I like Livermore's downtown does a better business than Pleasanton's now, but Pleasanton's still has the old-towne feel.

Here's a real objective one... At least it hasn't turned into a rancorous debate yet so I will add mine (in order of preference):
Coronado (circa 1984... but that doesn't really exist anymore)
Cambria
San Diego (if you count the zoo and Balboa park, it wins hands down over the other large CA cities)

^^Thats quite a collection....

You discounted Coronado.
Cambria is nice and quaint, but isnt the best in SLO County
San Francisco wins the big city debate, San Diego has come a long way, but its not close.

Congrats, you've precisely illustrated my sarcasm about this being a real objective topic. Note that it only took one successive poster to basically tell me that all my choices were wrong. Nice.
