There aren't many places in the Bay Area where you can shop at Nordstrom and in a few minutes see the snow capped peaks of the Sierra Mountains. But a trip to downtown Walnut Creek and the top of nearby Mt. Diablo affords the chance to do both. At the crossroads of Contra Costa and the I-680/HWY 24 interchange, Walnut Creek provides access to transportation, a vibrant downtown full of chic shops, great schools, and good job opportunities as high tech companies locate to the East Bay.

Shopping abounds in Walnut Creek's Broadway Plaza, an open-air regional shopping mall in the heart of downtown. This popular commercial district combines small boutiques with upscale shopping experiences at Nordstrom and Tiffany's. Dining at Bradley Ogden's famed Lark Creek, and the Walnut Creek Yacht Club, or enjoying the Walnut Creek Wine Walk, and the fine arts and crafts fair are part of the downtown Walnut Creek experience.
The Lesher Center for the Performing Arts is the cultural center of Walnut Creek, and presents over 900 events each year including musicals by local theater groups, as well as concerts by Diablo Symphony Orchestra, and the Contra Costa Chamber Orchestra, among others.
Walnut Creek prides itself on its excellent schools. Five separate school districts serve the students of the community. Parks are plentiful, and soccer teams take the fields year round.
