Bustling downtown with one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops.
Though quieter than other parts of Contra Costa County, The Lamorinda region has seen growth recently. Lafayette has a scenic reservoir with several trails as well as a bustling downtown with one-of-a-kind restaurants and shops.
The nearby hamlet of Moraga is best known for its Saint Mary’s College of California and neighboring Orinda has a small downtown that boasts a historic movie theater and an array of gourmet restaurants. The town also borders Tilden Regional Park, a 2,079-acre oasis for outdoor enthusiasts, offering myriad hiking and biking trails, a lake, a golf course, a botanic garden, and more. And The Caldecott Tunnel allows access to Berkeley and the beautiful, historic city of San Francisco.
