Danville is considered the “heart of the San Ramon Valley” and offers the perfect blend of upscale amenities and small-town charm. Its quaint character and convenient location just 30 miles east of San Francisco make it the perfect place to live, work, and play. Incorporated in 1982 and located in Contra Costa County, Danville is known for its small-town atmosphere and its outstanding quality of life.
Danville’s historic downtown features shops, restaurants, and art galleries that draw people from throughout the area. You’ll find epicurean adventures around every corner, like upscale eateries with one-of-a-kind menus and pizzerias with family-friendly fare.
The community enjoys natural creeks, hiking and biking trails, and dedicated open space. Arts and culture abound at the Village Theatre and Art Gallery, The Museum of the San Ramon Valley, the Veterans Memorial Building, and the Tao House—home to America's only Nobel Prize-winning playwright Eugene O'Neill.
One of Danville's most desirable attributes is its sense of community. The town hosts a wonderful array of events throughout the year, from Farmers' Markets to street fairs to holiday celebrations. The town's highly rated schools, executive homes, and unending recreational activities (including hiking, biking, swimming and more) add to the town's unparalleled appeal.
