Tucked between two valleys and the Mt. Diablo foothills sits the East Bay city of Walnut Creek. This ethnically diverse Northern California city is a unique blend of small-town and big city living. Characterized by rural rolling hills and urban landscapes, Walnut Creek is a mid-sized upscale city that retains more of a laidback vibe than cities like Oakland or Berkley. Although the cost of living in Walnut Creek is commensurate with its higher-end status, it is more reasonable to live in Walnut Creek in comparison to San Francisco. Located in Contra Costa County California, Walnut Creek is a central hub for nearby cities being conveniently positioned at the intersection of two major Bay area highways–Interstate 680 and Highway 24. Because of its location, residents have easy access to other Bay area cities and generally only spend an average of thirty minutes a day commuting to work.
