Alamo is a small town located in Contra Costa County, south of Walnut Creek.
As one of the long-time residents, Dan Marengo, writes, Alamo is "the kind of place where the baseball diamonds are taken care of, you see your neighbors at the market, the oak trees are large and gnarled and the swimming pools are always crystal-clear, eighty-two and blue." Buying a home in Alamo will provide you with some of the best weather in United States and with a close proximity to three exciting metropolitan areas: Oakland, San Francisco, and San Jose.
Alamo is a wonderful place to raise your family since the town is situated far enough away from the hustle of the big cities but close enough to expose children to the culture and diversity of San Francisco Bay area. The location of the town offers an easy access to some of the major attractions of Bay Area, such as Lake Tahoe, San Francisco, wine country, and the ocean.
The city is served by the award-winning San Ramon Unified School District.
