City Guide
San Ramon
Moving to San Ramon

San Ramon is home to some of the largest industries on the west coast. Petrol giant Chevron calls this city home, as well as 24-Hour Fitness and AT&T having headquarters within the city limits. Just to the south, I-680 will bring you to the infamous Silicon Valley, where tech industries have been booming for over two decades. If technology is your forte, San Ramon should be your future home.

Just a few miles north of Dublin and east of the San Francisco Bay, San Ramon may seem like an isolated community in the middle of the Central Valley. However, don’t let the map fool you. The abundance of interstates in the area make Oakland, San Francisco and even Concord very accessible without a lot of effort. A day trip to the mountains or a family beach outing are both within your reach easily from San Ramon.

As with moving into any city, make sure you have all the proper documentation. Bring your ID, proof of employment, a credit report if you have it, letters of references from old landlords to prove you're not a crazy tenant, and paperwork for any pets you want to bring along for the ride. And if you really want to impress the landlord, bring along a big fat check to show that you really want the place.

Neighborhoods

San Ramon is fed primarily by Interstate 680, which runs north to south through the city. If you’re into golf, there are two major courses: Canyon Lakes, to the north and San Ramon Golf Club to the south, close to the city limits. Most of the residential property is centered in the South and West neighborhoods, with a few small subdivisions scattered throughout the remaining areas. You will find small town charm mixed with comfortable suburban living. It’s a line that San Ramon walks well. Almost every neighborhood in San Ramon is a great place to live. Residents here enjoy a very beautiful and rejuvenating lifestyle accentuated by nature’s personal touch on every element.

East: Everything east of Doughety Rd, this is the land of parks. Monarch, Creekside, Souyen, Limerick and Arlington parks all reside within this one community. Outside of that think of brick and stone walled homes with a hint of Spanish influence. Mostly two stories in planned communities. This is a very quiet neighborhood. Expect a lot of barbecues on weekends.

Center: Central San Ramon is dominated by two major features. Almost all of the shopping, dining and commercial infrastructure is located here as well as Canyon Lakes Golf Course to the east. If you’re looking for an all bills paid option in San Ramon this is your best option. For a true taste of Spanish inspired, large family homes, look no further than the area surrounding Canyon Lakes. Many, many gated communities and large developments can be found here. The rolling hills offer a unique atmosphere which is accented favorably by decorative stone walls and well managed gardens.

South: If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, South is your place to be. Ranch style homes rest quietly along quiet shaded lanes. This is where you’ll chat with your neighbor over a privacy fence. This is where your kids will play in sprinklers during the summer and where trick or treaters will come knocking in October.

West: Everything to the west of Interstate 680, this neighborhood could almost be a city unto itself. Its length stretches the entire length of the interstate within the city limits. To the north end, a small shopping center provides convenience while a trip across the bridge will bring you right into the heart of the city. To the west rolling green hills provide the perfect backdrop for relaxed casual living. You will find more of the larger two story style homes resting right on the hillside. Street after street of green lawns and a unique mixture of maples, aks and evergreens provide character to the scenery.

Life in San Ramon

It goes without saying that tech jobs are plentiful here, but these are not the only occupation option. Bank of America, FedEx and InsightGlobal have offices here as well. This is a good thing, as moving with a job is much preferred to trying to find one. The local economy is not as strong as its neighbors with more resources. The good news? Unemployment is very low, especially for this region. The apartment vacancy rate here is below four percent. This means that it may take a few weeks to find a place, depending on which neighborhood you are targeting. Do a little research beforehand and you should have little trouble making the big move.

Weather

It should be noted that California is known as the Golden State. There is a good reason for this, since this part of the country sees more sun than anyone could ever hope for. It’s gorgeous here, but along with that comes intense summers. The northern part of the state is in a much more moderate climate than touristy locations such as Los Angeles and Long Beach but it still gets plenty warm in the middle months. Bring your suntan lotion and make sure you inquire about a/c options in your new home. Most one to three bedroom houses are going to have central air standard. Studios and one bedroom apartments may not have such amenities. These are the kinds of things you will want to notice upon arrival for your walk through.

Transportation

Having a car is a good idea here. You are not so far from the big cities that you can’t make an afternoon of it with little effort. However, public transit is harder to come by at this distance. San Ramon has its own BART system for local travel. If you work in the city you could make it a fairly long time until youre ready to purchase your own vehicle. The outlying attractions, which include the San Francisco Bay, the Brushy Peak Preserve and California’s many alluring beaches, will eventually make it an easy decision to switch transportation options early on.

Local Events

San Ramon is home to a thriving artistic community which showcases its work at the city gallery very often. The locals also have frequent concert festivals throughout the year highlighting a variety of styles from Jazz to Contemporary. During the winter months festivals keep the city alive including a symphonic Christmas concert in December. Local theatre is a big hit locally with live performances running for the majority of the year.
