"Not Florida Nice, but Nice"

Came here to Florida Drive in the Clayton Valley Highland to take a look at a 4-Bedroom Ranch home that is up for rent. It is a pretty typical looking Eisenhower Era street but really well kept, with a wide open feel to it that makes the overgrown lawns and un-kept bushes seem not so bad. There are even some picket fences. I don’t know if it is just because this section of Concord is slightly more hilly or because of something else, but this just seems lots better than another similar street we visited earlier down in the flatter part of Concord.

You will totally pay for the difference though. This home here is about $300 dollars more per month than the place we looked at in the Ellis Lake area.

One of the benefits that you get from taking Ygnacio Valley Road past the Cal State East Bay Campus is that the schools are a lot stronger on this side than in the rest of Concord. Highlands Elementary and Clayton Valley High are way above average and even the weakest link, Pine Hollow Middle School is solidly average--which is still above the standard set by most Concord Schools.

This actually a pretty nice spot. I would definitely not mind living here.
