San Ramon, California
San Ramon is situated due west and inland from San Francisco, and has a population of nearly 46,000 people. The city lies in a lovely valley with views of Mt. Diablo, and is considered an upscale area with a high quality of life. Originally a farming and ranching area, it later became home to Pacific Bell (now AT&T), and is a city that has carefully planned its growth. The downtown area is under development after more than twenty years of forethought, and is destined to become a fantastic core of the community. The city has good bus service and links into the central Bay area, and while you'll find sections very walkable, you may want to consider owning a car once you get settled into your San Ramon apartment.
The Tree City
Designated a Tree City, San Ramon offers its residents so many venues for outdoor pursuits. Iron Horse Regional trail and the Las Trampas Regional Wilderness area both have loads of places for running, hiking or biking. The local arts association keeps the cultural scene vibrant with many different activities in music, art, performing arts and literature. The Museum of the San Ramon Valley not only contains history of the area but provides an outlet for local artists to show their work. The city has just enough things to do, and with San Francisco and Oakland so close, you also have access to world class venues too.
Fast Food For Gourmets
Though not big on exterior look, Incontro in its redmodeled fast food looking building, is some of the best Italian food anywhere, and it is locally owned and managed. Bridges is great for more upscale American cuisine, and you'll find any number of very good Asian cuisine places too. Ao Zai Bistro for Vietnamese, Yang's for Chinese and Shiraz for Middle Eastern are good starting places. Your San Ramon apartment won't be far from any number of excellent places including some of the better chain ones.
For lively nights out, the ShBoom Night Club is where many of the locals hang out. Great live music and vibe. If sports bars are your thing, then either The Outpost or El Balazo will work for you. El Balazo is a Mexican restaurant but the bar scene is very cool. Or there's ITTO which combines sushi with sports. Your San Ramon apartment will be the perfect place from which to explore the diversity of this California town.

Is San Ramon famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
Located on San Ramon Valley Boulevard, Katy's Korner is the best breakfast and brunch locale around town. With a friendly and cozy atmosphere, Katy's serves up nine different eggs benedict dishes with their own homemade and mouth-watering hollandaise sauce, including the dungeoness crab eggs benedict and the California benedict made with turkey and avocado. Also be sure to try Katy's fresh-squeezed orange juice, famous home fries, corned beef hash, or the tasty blintzes and crepes. While the prices may be a tad higher than the average Denny's breakfast, the portions are generous and the quality is unbeatable. Just be sure to get there early, as Katy's Korner does tend to get very busy during peak hours!

What are some quiet neighborhoods in San Ramon?
Since San Ramon is much less urban than surrounding areas, there are many quiet neighborhoods. This is also because San Ramon doesn't have much in the way of a viable downtown. It's also because San Ramon began as a series of ranches and still hasn't been too developed. The area near the intersection of Dougherty Rd and Gale Ridge Rd is an example of a quiet neighborhood in San Ramon.
