In Alamo, an unincorporated area of Contra Costa County, you can see kids riding their horses along the sandy streets of the outer neighborhoods. Large, custom homes in contemporary and French Country styles on half-acre lots define this tranquil town in set amongst the Northern California oak countryside. At the foot of Mount Diablo, Alamo offers seclusion, serenity, and tranquility. Parks and trails are plentiful, including The Iron Horse Trail, a 33-mile multiuse pathway that connects the communities of Concord and Dublin. Andrew H. Young Park, Hap Magee Ranch Park, Livorna Park, and Rancho Romero School Sports Field and Park feature volleyball courts, picnic and barbecue areas, open-air gazebos, and dog parks. Downtown Alamo is anchored by the Alamo Hay & Grain store, which sports a fiberglass statue of a life-sized Palomino on its roof. Locals hang out at the Alamo Cafe, Cherubini Coffee House, and Bagel Street Cafe.
