I’ve lived here 20 years, haven’t come across any interesting shops. City library is minimal.
I suppose the new huge Regal Cinemas complex with the slew of mini restaurants is what attracts most visitors. Limited commercial zone. A few office buildings in the southwest corner, and newer larger ones in the east. Big military base, barren hills, and a prison take up a lot of space.
Other than that, it’s just a bunch of commuter homes crowded around the 568/680 intersection. Some very big homes in the new developments in the west and east of the city.
Pleasanton has a much nicer library, has the fairgrouds, and has a much nicer looking downtown area.over 5 years ago
