Located just south of Walnut Creek, just north of Danville, and just off of I-680, Alamo is an affluent suburb of San Francisco, located about 28 miles east of the city. First settled in the 1700s, it developed as a farming community famous for its almonds, walnuts, grapes, and various other fruits. Legend has it that the walnut trees in the area were descended from Persian cuttings that were grafted to native trees, giving Alamo’s nuts a distinctive quality.
Nestled in between the Las Trampas Ridge and the Diablo Mountain Range, the views are magnificent; surrounded by forested hillsides and wilderness, it is only a short drive to San Francisco or San Jose.
