Discovering Pleasanton

Township_BlogPost_121115Have you ever heard about the Legend of Zorro? Some say it all started in Pleasanton, back then called “Alisal”. The hero (or “desperado”, depending who’s telling the story) brought a new hope to town and since then Pleasanton turned into one of the most prosperous communities in California.

Zorro was not the only reason why Pleasanton became what it is today. Its rich soil hosts many of the largest domestic and foreign beer producers, making Pleasanton internationally famous. In 1894, the city became home to Pleasanton Race Track, the oldest horse racing track in the nation. It’s not hard to imagine why in the mid-20th century it became a magnet for retail and commercial developers. Today is proudly a major job center with an ongoing influx of many corporate businesses and industries.

This city holds a year round range of fun family activities, like the Truffles, Tidbits & Wine Tasting in February, Cinco de Mayo Celebration, the Antique Fair (in May), Shakespeare in the Park and Movies in the Park are also a big success. Also, concerts in the Park during the whole Summer, the Pleasanton Heritage Festival in September and the Fall Antique Fair in October are famous events. And don’t forget the annual mid-summer Alameda County Fair is located in Pleasanton, hosting numerous shows and statewide and regional events which draw thousands annually and don’t forget the Beer Crawl festival!

Downtown Pleasanton offers a hometown feel – even though is not far from busy San Francisco – and holds charms and wonderful places to dine, shop or just enjoy the outdoor public spaces.

The Fairway Golf Course, with nine holes and 30 par is excellent for rookies and experts. But if you’re looking for a great family fun day, you and your little ones will enjoy the waterparks: Shadow Cliff Recreation Area and Rapids Water Slides.
