Quaint Small Town Atmosphere
Danville passionately defends and preserves its rustic, rural atmosphere. Danville is a town that exudes charm and sophistication. The quaint downtown district, once the entertainment center for surrounding farms and ranches, features a country motif and century old buildings. Oak trees are abundant and a majestic 300 year old oak situated in the middle of Diablo Road greets visitors to the city. Residential development has grown rapidly in recent years particularly on Danville's east side, combining handsome ranch style homes, two story traditional homes, as well as contemporary homes, custom estates, town home neighborhoods, and an exclusive gated golf course community. Here one finds homes with backyard pools and sometimes even a horse corral. Nearby the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness provides 3,780 acres of natural beauty.
