You don’t like Clayton??????😲🤯
It was voted the cleanest small city in the country.
It’s clean, peaceful, has nice area for park, walking, etc.
Would you rather walk through S.F. and step on 💩 and 💉 and walk next to homeless people and ⛺?
Please list reasons as I’m curious.

@Paul
Please list the reason(s) you chose Clayton over Alamo, Danville, Moraga, or Orinda. Clayton is a nice-looking town with low crime, so your answer is puzzling; and as “Countrygal” said, just curious. Thanks.

Ok good. 😂

It is nestled in between Concord and Pittsburg. How can you compare it to those other towns? Clayton is better than Concord I get it but slow down on clayton. Closer to Downtown pitt than Downtown WC.

Antioch. Close runner ups are Richmond and Oakland. Oakland would be number one but the one thing it’s got going for it is food. There is sone great food in Oakland. Antioch and Richmond have no positives whatsoever

I grew up in Richmond. My Dad was a Richmond police officer. It is a beautiful city. Beautiful regional parks. Miles of shoreline. Great restaurants like Up and Under Pub, Angel’s, Los Hermanas, and many more. Ships were built at the Kaiser Shipyard for WWII, and now there is a WWII era victory ship (SS Red Oak) which is a floating museum. Yes, Richmond has rough areas but it is a beautiful city with a rich and vibrant history. Don’t be jealous because your home town isn’t as great as Richmond.

Richmond — as well as much of West County — has some of the nicest weather around. During the summer, when Central and East counties are sweltering with 95+° F heat, Richmond enjoys cool, sunshiny days, with temperatures stuck around 70° F. Just the other day at Pt. Isabel, I chatted with a woman who had come all the way from Livermore with her doodle to escape the searing dry heat of the Tri-Valley. She expressed amazement at the cool ocean breeze and the lovely warm day. When she said she would like to move here, I suggested El Cerrito and some nicer areas of Richmond.

Bored@Work, have you ever been to Point Richmond?

Dr. Jellyfinger August 30, 2023 - 1:09 PM - 1:09 PM

Point Richmond is nice but there is nowhere to park.

Dawg August 28, 2023 - 12:53 PM - 12:53 PM

Parts of Oakland I stay away from, but there are some nice neighborhoods like Montclair, Rockridge, and Temescal, that are nice to visit. The San Jose Metropolitan Area, including San Jose, Saratoga, Campbell, Cupertino, and Los Gatos has grown into one huge city, and is a mess with an awful lot of traffic.

Love me some Montclair Par-3/range/restaurant/bar … but this next round of CV lockdowns prolly gonna kill it … so sad … hope I’m wrong.

“Least favorite”? That’s a nice way of saying “hate” or “hated”.
.
We detest OAKLAND.
.
If the SF Bay Area were to receive and enema, the hose would be stuck in Oakland – terrible leadership, terrible policies, crime-ridden, dirty, filthy, and unsafe. It’s a hell hole.

CountryGal August 28, 2023 - 2:32 PM - 2:32 PM

The main ones are definitely S.F. and Berkeley.
Two places I’ll never go again.
They’re absolute dumps.
Antioch and Richmond are also dumps but I never go there.
And for the most part, Oakland and Hayward, too.
CA sucks in general.

Why do you hate the town where the successful people live? They kicked ass at life, financially at least, good for them.

Any city whose city leaders want to coddle the criminals. Although most cities have charm, nothing is charming enough to risk harm to me or my property.

Jeff (the other one) August 28, 2023 - 4:26 PM - 4:26 PM

I’d have to say Pittsburg, only for the reason it seems the city with the least positive attributes I can come up with. I am sure there are plenty, but I do not know them.

The expected response is Antioch, Pittsburg … etc

But SF, Berkzoid and Oakland used to be places to visit. Today, no way, no how. I won’t even let my children consider UCB as an option because. I will not contribute to that cess pool.

Hanne Jeppesen August 28, 2023 - 9:51 PM - 9:51 PM

It is hard to say. Some cities I’m not familiar with others that I use to like have changed. In the late seventies I took a weaving class through the De Young Museum, Oakland and Berkeley were the best places to get the yarn I needed. So I would go there quite often, even though I lived in Marin. I never had any bad experiences. Then when I was selling long term care insurance, I got leads from my company for all different area’s. Anywhere from Oakland to Davis, and the wine country. I had one appointment in Oakland, I was really worried that my car would be there when I was done. I almost left figuring I would not sell anything. Well, turned out it was a single guy, he had inherited his mother’s house, and the downstairs tenant was a 96 year old lady, he was helping out. He had plenty of money and bougth a nice policy from me. The City I first disliked when I moved to the Peninsula, was San Jose, I thought it was too spread out, and I would often get lost when I had to drive there. I have never spend a lot of time there, but have met friends for lunch at Santana Row, which is very nice.

Here’s the thing … there little pockets of really cool places in all the cities we are dissing … the problem is there is no leadership at city, state, federal levels … therefore, for every cool pocket there are a dozen roach nests … and they will inevitebly spill over … laws without enforcement are no laws at all … rule of law … straight leadership … there is a poverty of leadership problem in USA .. from the top to bottom. Fix it, fix it, fix it. … #RIPSF #RIPBayArea #RIPCalifornia #RIPUSA #RIPUSConstitution etc, etc, etc … vote out the losers … vote in real leaders … nuff said. Have a nice day.

Oakland, its the Alameda county seat and full of crime and corruption…. yes, there are pockets of niceness…. but overall it is a cesspool. Has been a long time.

Fed Up August 30, 2023 - 9:36 AM - 9:36 AM

Since the early 70’s – 50 years adrift.
