Getting to Know You, Pleasant Hill Edition!
I love Pleasant Hill, but not everyone is familiar with this pretty community nestled in the rolling hills of the East Bay with great parks, trails, and schools. Pleasant Hill also has a fabulous Rec Center and Senior Center with programs for the whole family making it a really great place for families and singles alike.
Downtown Pleasant Hill is the vibrant heart of the city, offering a bustling mix of shops, restaurants, and entertainment options. Residents enjoy a diverse selection of eateries, from Italian to sushi, and can take in a movie at the nearby Century 16 Theater. The downtown area is also home to seasonal events and festivals, such as the summer farmers' market and the Pleasant Hill Art, Music, and Wine Festival this weekend, May 20/21. It's always a wonderful event!
