Take a Stroll Downtown
With our temperate California weather, there’s never a bad time to walk around Downtown Pleasanton! The quaint shops and adorable storefronts are just the start of all the unique treasures you will find. There is so much history and art and fantastic places to eat, all in one place!

There are more than 5,200 acres of oak-covered ridge that overlook Pleasanton and the Livermore Valley from the west! Spending a day out in the gorgeous scenery is always a day well spent.

A whole section of street is blocked off and food trucks, music, artists and more entertainment is brought in. Come, grab some food and wander around, enjoying the warm summer night and the music! Wednesday Street Parties are completely free (except for any food or art purchases you might make!) and you can even bring your four-legged friends. Keep an eye on the Downtown Pleasanton events page for dates!
