Whether you're buying a home, selling your home or relocating to Pleasanton or the Tri-Valley area of the East Bay, the following information, resources and tools will help to guide your decision.

The Tri-Valley is situation in the eastern region of the San Francisco Bay area, 18 miles southeast of Oakland, and 33 miles from San Francisco.  It encompasses the cities of Dublin, Livermore, Pleasanton, and San Ramon, the town of Danville, and the communities of Alamo, Blackhawk and Diablo.  There are also many close neighboring communities like Sunol, Fremont, and Castro Valley.  

The climate of the Tri-Valley is mild, and most rain falls in Winter.  Snow almost never touches the ground here, but you may see it on the tops of the surrounding hills, especially Mt. Diablo and Mt. Hamilton.  Summer days are in the 80's to 100's, but nights area usually always cool.  Many evenings in the summer we get a nice breeze from the North.  In Winter, days are usually in the 50's to 60's, but can get down into the 30's at night in the coldest part of Winter.  Average rain fall is about 14 inches per year. 

Wheels is our bus agency that services our local area, along with feeder services to Hacienda Business Park, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, Las Positas College, Stoneridge Mall, Dublin/Pleasanton BART station, and our Senior Center.

Two major highways, 580 & 680 cross the Tri-Valley area.  580 runs east to west, connecting the Central Valley to the east, and the North Bay to the west.  680 runs north to south connection to the South Bay area in the south, and the Concord-Walnut Creek area in the north.
