Alamo

Modern Alamo remains closely associated with its refined, outdoorsy roots.

Welcome to Alamo

Charming, upscale hamlet is an outdoor lover's dream.

​​​​​​​

The East Bay and Contra Costa County are home to many scenic cities and towns, although few can claim the arresting landscapes and upscale charm found in Alamo. Because of Alamo’s peaceful tranquility, it's easy to forget the unincorporated tract of land is a 10-minute drive to Walnut Creek, with San Francisco reachable in under an hour.


Early influences in Alamo came from the robust orchards and vineyards that are featured prominently across the area. The agreeable climate propagated pears, grapes, almonds, and walnuts, among other fruits and nuts.


Modern Alamo remains closely associated with its refined, outdoorsy roots. Large estate homes are the general rule, but even smaller residences often occupy lots of a half-acre or more. Walnut Heights at Alamo's northernmost point is a tree-shaded community with traditional ranch homes and modern new builds. Spanish tile roofs, large, elegant homes, and endless views prevail in the southern neighborhood of Alamo Oaks.


The esteemed Round Hill Country Club and the surrounding community occupy Alamo's central corridor. The club features an 18-hole golf course, 15 tennis courts, a swimming center, a state-of-the-art fitness facility, and bocce ball courts.


There is only one small commercial district within the town; however, for those who prefer Alamo's charming and quaint lifestyle, it provides everything a resident could want. The Peasant’s Courtyard, Cherubini Coffee House, Forli Restaurant & Bar, and Brass Bear Delicatessan prove the big city isn't the only place for great dining.


There is plenty to love about the outdoors in Alamo, with many places to explore. Though less than 10 square miles, the town features nearly 30 acres of city parks and numerous trailheads leading into the 5,000-acre Las Trampas Regional Wilderness Park. Livorna Park hosts an annual Summer Concert Series and Movies Under the Stars.


The showstopper is 20,000-acre Mt. Diablo State Park and the nearly 4,000-foot Mt. Diablo. The park occupies a large portion of Alamo's eastern boundary, where residents and visitors can access a number of trailheads and entry points.
