Warm weather, almost year round, with temperatures over 90 degrees in the summer months makes you feel like you have left the Bay Area for the Mediterranean. Walnut Creek's newly renovated outdoor mall with luxury stores is a shoppers delight. New restaurant and apartment construction is almost always underway showing this Bay Area suburb is really thriving.
Walnut Creek is the central business district for many East Bay suburbs located in the Contra Costa Valley including Orinda, Lafayette and Danville. The newly renovated outdoor Westfield Mall with luxury stores is a destination for designer lovers and families a like. Walnut Creek is easily accessible by highway 24 and 680 or by the Walnut Creek BART station. Take a break from shopping and enjoy almost year round warm weather on a hike in the rolling hills of the Diablo Foothills Regional Park. And if you are feeling adventurous trek to the top of Mt. Diablo for sweeping views of the entire Bay Area.
