"Life and Death and a Bit In Between"

Danville Boulevard is home to San Ramon Valley High School and the Alamo Cemetery, so you could say that you get both sides of life here, those that are just starting out and those that are stepping out of this life.

San Ramon Valley High School, which I think I mentioned in another review as well, is an excellent school with high achievements in academics and athletics—although that is pretty much par for the course here. A very good school in a safe area which is the big attraction of a place like Danville. It is also relatively well located for the San Jose commute—though not so much if you have to go SF or the Peninsula.

As to the cemetery, Alamo Cemetery is one of the most historic spots in all of Danville dating back to just after the Gold Rush—1850, when Danville must have been in its infancy. The cemetery doesn’t take new families though it still takes members of families already buried there, and there is a museum there too—though I must admit it doesn’t sound like much.
It’s actually a pretty nice looking cemetery, as far as cemeteries go—very leafy and park like.

What about actually living here?

In between the cemetery and the high school, there is a pretty nice neighborhood made up of very nice—expensive—homes. These mostly look like large really well-kept Ranch style homes—though there are also a lot of Contemporary style homes too—and they are on really quiet streets. It is pretty much the kind of idyllic neighborhood that you might expect to find in a place like Danville.
Pros
