"Pretty Typical American Canyon Neighborhood"

Napa Glen is one of the neighborhoods on the western end of American Canyon, just to the south and east of American Canyon Middle School. Most of the houses in this neighborhood date to the 1980s and 1990s. Basically, this means a lot of big Contemporary Style homes and wide streets.

The median price of one of these homes is around $250K--a good $100k less than in the newer neighborhoods just to the north of here. I suppose this mainly has to do with the fact that these homes are a little older and that this is a little farther towards the southern end of American Canyon which is generally considered less desirable than the northern end nearer to Napa.

The schools here are still really strong: Donaldson Elementary, American Canyon Middle School, and American Canyon High School all being above average.

As to crime, it is mostly of the kind the average resident doesn’t have to worry about--that is there seems to be a fair amount of domestic violence reports in this part of town but not a lot of the random violence we fear in urban areas.

Overall this is a pretty typical American Canyon neighborhood with all its positives and drawbacks.
  • Affordable Homes
  • Relatively Safe
  • Good Schools
  • Far From Major Employment Centers
