Pleasanton is a strange mix of California-style suburban ennui, Silicon Valley northern satellite architecture, well-preserved older homes and buildings, and good schools.

Their high school football teams are noted for racking up impressive records against whitebread competition during the regular season, then getting the crap kicked out of them in the playoffs by toughass rednecks from schools like Oakdale in the Central Valley.

Dean's Cafe downtown is the total worldwide omelette dominator. Best place on the planet for omelettes. The end.

Overall Pleasanton is pretty darn pleasant, but it's got kind of an otherworldly, Potemkin village feel to it that's hard to qualify precisely. It's weird that way.
Dunno Joe, that doesn't strike me as too hardcore. Sorta Pleasanton, actually.

A preppy town in the east bay area. Known for nice schools, people who can AFFORD drugs, Stoneridge mall, and upscale neighborhoods. Where the only way police make money is giving tickets to soccer moms in Escalades.

Pleasanton's in the valley, so in the summer, its 100 degrees, and in the winter, its 35.

They're preppier than Livermore, but not as preppy as Danville. Its pretty much an essential to make friends with kids from fremont.

And it surprises everyone that even though most the kids are white, they win hella sports anyway.

Its the perfect place to raise a family. But then again, alot of the parents are never home anyways.

The riches neighborhoods in Pleasanton are Ruby Hills, Castlewood, Golden Eagle, and Black Hawk. But there are also random private estates and low to mid million homes in The Preserve, Moller Ranch, and Ironwood.

The teachers kill to work there, but then regret it cause pretty much all of the family moved there for higher test scores. Some end up quitting because of pressure and complaints.

Its so much harder to find friends if you're knew in Pleasanton, than pretty much any other town in the bay area. Alot of the people were raised judgemental.

Downtown pleasanton, one of the thousand parks here, and Stoneridge mall are basically the only places to hang.

Pleasanton girls are hard to get at, because theyre picky with their men.

Commonly perceived as completely boring, but Pleasanton parties are the best parties. Why? People can afford the crack and Jack Daniels.
I love soccer girls that wear Abercrombie and Fitch

Go to Pleasanton, that'll be your heaven.

A peaceful town with a growing population. Lived by middle to upper-class citizens, this rich area has mnay blue ribbon schools and financially sound companies. But there isnt much to do especially on rainy days.
Pleasanton is a nice town because it has a clean Wal-mart.

Pleasanton is a nice little town outside of San Fransico. Pleasanton is where the upper class people live, but they aren't as rich as those snobby people in Danville. Main Street was preserved very well (much better than Livermore).

Pleasanton has a wonderful family atmosphere, which can sometimes be annoying. Pleasanton revolves around family. There's so much to do if you have a family or in one. Parks are around almost every corner and shopping places.

Everything is so very clean. Don't ask me why.

Pleasanton is also better than Livermore because Pleasanton has its own mall and the highschoolers there don't smoke pot and other drugs and are gangsters like Livermore. Most of the teenagers are preps or sluts. Goths and punks are not as common as preps or sluts, but they're around. The schools have large metal cages around the windows, which give the school a more prison feel. Soda machines and candy machines, in most schools, have been taken away do to frequent sugar highs.
Everything is very clean, including bathrooms in McDonalds.

Pleasanton is WAY better than Livermore and Danville (aka Evilland) combinded!

Pleasanton is probably the most ghetto place in the SF bay area. Everyone there has escalades and ferraris and bmws. The kids there can actually AFFORD drugs, so theres no crime or nothing.
Guy 1: Dude I wanna go to a place where I dont have to kill people for drugs!

Guy 2: Go to pleasanton!

High school girl: OMG SEX!

types of people:
1. 55% of all the pleasantonite kids fall in to this catagory: aitheist or aganostic though their parents were raised christan or jewish so they still have to go to church. they make up the middle of the road group in the schools, the kids who get moderate to good grades and get in only a little trouble, often suck ups or sluts.
2.15% of the kids in pleasanton are waaay too christain and make fun of gay people and mexicans. they think their cooler than they realy are and show it. they often pretend to be skaters or gangsters and tell everyone storys about how tough they are.
3.15%...skaters. they too think that their realy awsome for the most part. some are cool and merge into the "punks" but a majority think that they are the best skater in town. also called "fgo kids" many smoke and drink, and quite a few smoke weed as well, shrooms not uncommon.
4.5%...punks. this includes all the kids that listen to underground bayarea punk, hardcore, noise, rockabilly ect. to be in this group you must also go to "shows" that play the music listed above. the main venue for pleasantonite punks, unity closed a few years ago so now most shows are held at the famous gilman in berkeley and house shows in the tri valley
5.3% these kids only play video games. they never leave thier house exept for school. they are often fat.
6.3% hippies these kids are very concerned with whats going on in the world today. they usualy get in trouble alot in and out of school and listen to old music from the 60's and hate modern rap and hip hop. they get called gay by the "popular" kids but dont realy care what people say about them too much. pot and shrooms are the drugs of choice for these kids and at home they make their parents buy free range meant, oraganic food and drinks, and hemp clothing.

the city: pleasanton is an upper middle class city with some rich neiborhoods. there is not very much to do, but downtown, the movie theater, and the mall are popular. crime is low and cops have way too much to do so get mad at kids for basicly nothing. some kids hang out in abandond houses and under bridges and on roofs, especially the hippies and punks
lets go to san fransisco instead of hanging around pleasanton today
