Welcome to Pleasanton!

Welcome to Pleasanton!

Welcome to Pleasanton!

Without question, the heart of Pleasanton is its downtown area, it harkens back to the 1800s in the wild West. Today it’s full of cafes, coffee shops, boutiques, art galleries, bakeries, and fine restaurants. Think Butch Cassidy meets Wolfgang.

In 1884, Pleasanton was made a city and it is on from there we celebrated our Centennial a few years back. John Cottanger was an admirer of general Alfred Pleasonton. It was Pleasonton, not Pleasanton but the Postal Service fouled it up, and put the “A” and instead of the “O”. And so that’s why we’re Pleasanton, instead of Pleasonton. It’s a great community and it draws people because it has a hometown feel. Our Main Street is still a home town.

We were looking for an area such as this, where it looks a little bit like Old Town, hometown USA. A lot of people from back east say it reminds them of where they grew up, in the area and so forth, and it has that kind of feel. So between the uniqueness of the merchants here, the stores and the wonderful restaurants on Main Street, find people come back regularly, every day.

We are the wine steward, we’re in downtown Pleasanton. We’re the largest wine shop in the East Bay, happens to be right down here in full old downtown Pleasanton. And this used to be an old movie theater built in the 1920’s, and we took occupation in 1999 and have been here ever since.

Pleasanton is one of those throwback towns, this part of it which is the old downtown, is just a quaint area, and people are friendly, people are down here walking their dogs, and it’s just like old America, it’s a really nice place to hang out and live.

I’ve been in Pleasanton for 26 years, and I’ve had my store here for ten years and I love Pleasanton. The customers are really friendly, all my friends come in, my kids go to school in Pleasanton and it’s just been the best experience in my life to have a store here.

Downtown Pleasanton is actually the heart of Pleasanton. That’s what everyone calls it, it’s a place we gather, it’s the place we come down to just for coffee or a good piece of pizza. Great restaurants of all kinds here. People like to just sit out and watch each other and talk to each other. You’ll see lots of bike riders, you’ll see lots of hikers and walkers and just people with baby carriages, down here in the downtown because it’s the place we all gather.

Got to love the farmer’s market too.

Yeah, the farmer’s market, which we’ve only done this a few times now, but this is really nice to be able to walk down here on a Saturday. We live right on the street right on the main street, so we don’t get in the car at all. And having the fairgrounds, right next door, with all the car shows that happen every year. Being able to just walk from our house like right to the car shows when it’s happening, it’s great.

When it’s the first Wednesday of the month and they block off Main Street, it’s pretty much a block party. It goes from six to nine on the first Wednesday of the month, from May to September I think it is.

Main Street is like a Rockwell painting, it’s kind of a small town. Everybody talks to each other it’s, it’s just really nice.You can look and see, everybody is just kind of cruising, it’s relaxed, there’s no stress. It’s just a really, really beautiful town.

It’s a vital downtown, it’s where everybody wants to be.

So I hope you enjoyed our look around Downtown Pleasanton, if I can be of any assistance to you or answer any questions, please give me a call. I’m worthy of your trust.

Hi Doug, I enjoyed reading your post about Pleasanton, a delightful town. I've had several clients relocate there when the Silicon Valley became too expensive. Let's keep in touch.
