I love Pleasant Hill! On my off days, I'm usually enjoying a cool drink or checking out the news while catching a relaxing breeze in Gregory Gardens, Grayson Woods, Poests Corner, and El Dorado Park., where every upward glance is met by the beautiful skyline.
The best areas in Pleasant Hill, CA have to be [places]. Great food and relaxation are key for me, and if I can have an evening of good sushi, a lunch with something light and tasty, or a great pizza to go with a Netflix binge, I'm satisfied.
Living in Pleasant Hill has its downsides. I'm not a standard department store shopper, so trying to find anything new or novel isn't easy. You can get your standard goods and a few new, mainstream brands from Pleasant Hill Shopping center or Sandalwood, but I tend to dip into Concord or go straight into Oakland or San Francisco.
It's not hipster's paradise, but it's in driving distance of a lot of hidden gems in the surrounding areas.
