In the last 20 years, Pleasanton’s bedroom community has rapidly grown into one of the most sought after locations in the Bay Area. Due to its rich soil, Pleasanton started out as an agricultural community revolving around dairy farms, hop fields & vineyards, which made Pleasanton the agricultural center for the Amador Valley. The community that was home to the Ohlone Indians has since transformed itself into a city with excellent schools, a strong economic base and well planned neighborhoods. Pleasanton has also attracted high-tech businesses from the Silicon Valley and San Francisco Bay Area and top employers such as Oracle, Charles Schwab, Providian Financial, and AT&T which are among the leaders in their respective fields.
Pleasanton offers entertainment for all ages from the “old time charm” of downtown, mouth watering restaurants, cultural arts, 36 municipal parks and many more community gatherings which make Pleasanton “The Jewel of the Amador Valley.”
