"Home Depot and Fast Food--Not Much Else"

Every suburban city needs a good strip mall with a variety of stores to keep people from the necessity of buckling up just to go fetch some groceries. Well that is basically what the New Town Center neighborhood of Hercules is.

This is where you can find your local Taco Bell, Round Table Pizza—but also where you can find a sushi place like Suishen Sushi, and household necessities like a Home Depot and Big Lots (whatever that is), Post Office and USPS store. On the other side of Highway 80, you can also find a Starbucks, Yuck-in-the-Box, Extreme Pizza and the highlight of the bunch, a Kinder’s bbq. There is also an optometrist.

There are also some city offices here like the Library and the Police Station.

Okay, so nothing here is fantastic, but it is convenient and there are some other basic necessities like a supermarket in Country Run, the neighborhood just to the south.
Pros
  • Convenient Stores
  • Close to Freeway
  • Local Optometrist
Cons
  • No Really Good, Distinctive Restaurants
  • Bland Appearance
  • Lots of Commuter Traffic
Recommended for
