What people are saying about Pleasanton
|It\'s crowded and expensive|
|We live south of Pleasanton towards San Jose, all part of the expanding Silicon Valley. With all these jobs come a lot of new arrivals with their cars and their need for housing - and the whole atmosphere spirals into an over-priced, long-commute, lines everywhere kind of place. It\'s a shame as the area is beautiful, the opportunities for sightseeing, going to Yosemite or Lake Tahoe, the beach or San Francisco or wine country is so easy. The weather is great and the educational opportunities are terrific. There are excellent medical facilities. If you can always avoid the expanded rush hours and you have money to comfortably burn, you might enjoy living here.|

|It was a great place to raise Children, but....|
|We moved to Pleasanton in 1997 from Fairfax, Virginia for the tech industry. It is a great town to raise children due to quality schools and extra-curricular activities and low crime rate. The town has an All-American, Apple Pie feel and look to it. Lovely town! However, the traffic outside of the city has become a nightmare. Just getting to my job (in Fremont) that is 16 miles away is taking me an hour. Weekend traffic is clogged everywhere. The cost of living is high and our adult children cannot afford to live here. Our adult son and many of his friends still live with their parents. We are ready to move to a more affordable area as soon as we retire in 2017, but do not want to move until our son has found a place to live that he can afford. As commute times are a big factor, he cannot move to a less expensive place if it has a commute time that is hours away.|
