Concord, the largest city in Contra Costa County, has experienced tremendous growth, making it one of the Bay Area's leading commercial centers. Concord provides a suburban atmosphere with an easy commute to other cities in the Bay Area. Homes are mostly ranch style in well-defined subdivision neighborhoods, with some 2-story homes and condominiums available. Concord is loaded with activities; 19 parks, 12 playgrounds, golf courses, community center, several superbly equipped fitness clubs and the Blue Devils Marching Band (considered one of the best in the nation). Concord is also home for the Concord Pavilion which has provided first-class entertainment to San Francisco Bay residents for many years.

A few year's ago, Concord placed among the top 12 cities nationwide for "City Livability Awards." In 1991, Zero Population Growth, rating for environmental health, named this city as one of the best places to live.

Concord's 26 elementary schools, 8 intermediate schools and 7 high schools are part of Mt. Diablo Unified School District, a highly rated district whose schools at all levels rank among the state's top 15 percent based on test scores. 1992 saw the opening of a state university campus in Concord. This campus has made higher education more accessible to local residents and gave Concord a financial boost.
