Welcome to Alamo
There’s a great community to raise a family tucked within trees.
The small bedroom community of Alamo lives at a quieter pace than the neighboring Walnut Creek, but waking up between Las Trampas Ridge and the Diablo Range is unlike waking up anywhere else. Feeling at ease is effortless in the unincorporated community of Alamo. Large parks and outdoor spaces supply an abundance of outdoor entertainment. Amazing schools are a large draw for families. Those looking to settle into a place where every school their child enters is a positive educational experience won’t be disappointed in Alamo.
What to Love
- Large residential lots
- Quiet and peaceful semi-rural setting
- Quaint downtown
The semi-rural setting and small downtown reflect the notion that you’ve found a quaint town where everyone is familiar with everyone else. And this may be true! The population isn’t as large as neighboring communities. Large lots are common for homes in the area and allow homeowners to feel peaceful amongst their surroundings. Excellent sunrises and sunsets paint the valley which is abundant with orchards and vineyards. Those living affluent lifestyles will love the slower pace and seemingly extra time which they are able to spend with their loved ones.
Dining, Entertainment & Shopping
Though Alamo isn’t large, there’s plenty of entertainment to be found. The Alamo Plaza Shopping Center is a popular spot for shopping and dining. Shoppers of all ages will enjoy the days’ fresh donuts from the family-owned restaurant Great Donuts. Get your hair done at the Ciao Bella Salon then head to the Xenia! Bistro and Steakhouse for wood-fired pizzas, pastas, and more Italian fusion favorites. Cap off your night with a locally crafted beer at the E.J. Phair Brewing Company. When you wake up in the morning, fill your empty stomach with a hearty breakfast from the Alamo Cafe. The restaurant has been around since 1947, and whether you order the omelettes, pancakes, or another breakfast staple, you’re bound to leave satisfied. Feeling like completing a new project? The Alamo Hardware on Danville Boulevard can aid you through the process.
Things to Do
Though there aren’t many entertainment venues for locals to visit in Alamo, residents find themselves kept busy by the array of things to do. All year long the Alamo Sunday Farmers Market sets up in Alamo Plaza to showcase the best of what local farmers and makers have to offer the community that week. Stop by on Sunday morning for a fresh snack before you head to one of the parks, hiking trails, or walk through downtown. Families will find themselves revisiting the Hap Magee Ranch Park time and time again. The park is more than 16 acres of walking trails, picnic areas, play areas, and a dog park. Locals who opt in to a membership at the Round Hill Country Club have an even wider range of activities to consider. The 18 hole golf course has hosted Professional Golf Association events and still offers a challenge to the most experienced golfers. 14 championship tennis courts, a swimming complex, and multiple clubhouses provide members with enough activities and programs to fill even the emptiest of schedules.
