Welcome to Pleasant Hill

A small town with a vibrant social life

True to its name, Pleasant Hill is a charming town that makes its residents feel at home. It is a tight-knit, peaceful, and quiet city known as the Bay Area’s backyard. Its warm summer days, mild winters, friendly community, laid-back vibe, and proximity to big, bustling cities are some of its most appealing features.
The city's architectural style is also impressive, with the Pleasant Hill City Hall winning numerous architectural design awards. There are several neighborhoods in Pleasant Hill, such as the Poet’s Corner, and each has a different vibe so that you can find the best community for your next home. Day trips and weekend excursions to nearby destinations are easily accessible, with Napa Valley and San Francisco only a quick ride away via BART.

What to Love

  • Located 40 minutes east of San Francisco
  • Barbeque parties at Rodgers-Smith Park
  • Plenty of dining and shopping options

Local Lifestyle

Pleasant Hill exudes a relaxed and welcoming vibe thanks to its friendly neighbors and sunny weather. The majority of housing options in this suburban city are spacious single-family homes and newer renovated properties. Pleasant Hill boasts abundant green spaces, meaning residents don’t have to leave the neighborhood to enjoy nature. However, because Pleasant Hill remains close to the action of a big city and has easy access to other East Bay communities, it provides the ideal blend of suburban and urban living.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

Downtown Pleasant Hill is an active area offering the best outdoor shopping experiences. There is something for everyone here, from high-end restaurants and major retail outlets to Cinemark’s 16-screen movie theater. Not far from the Cinemark is Morgan Territory Brewing, an award-winning brewery with a calendar full of fun events at their tap house. 

Walnut Creek, located just four miles from Pleasant Hill, also has many upscale restaurants, such as Galpao Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse. They have a menu inspired by Brazilian cuisine with 17 various grilled types of meat. They also have a gourmet salad bar with over 40 items. Brasas De Brasil Churrascaria is another Brazilian steakhouse with a cozy atmosphere and a hot station with a variety of soups, potatoes, and other sides. Peruse the food trucks set up alongside the beloved Civic Park, and afterward, take a scenic stroll along its well-maintained pathways. Jack's Restaurant and Bar serves American cuisine, such as classic burgers, cobb salads, and New York steak, in a comfortable and welcoming atmosphere. WiseGirl and Back Forty Texas BBQ are also honorable mentions when talking restaurants in Pleasant Hill.
