If you’re looking for a more pastoral setting with kid-friendly cul de sacs and good neighbors, you might want to consider Moraga. It’s the smallest of the three towns in Lamorinda—16,700 people—and a bit further from the freeway.
Home to Saint Mary’s College, Moraga offers a lovely sense of community through its terrific schools, volunteer opportunities, and swim clubs. Most kids walk to both elementary and middle school, so there’s more of an “old-fashioned” scene of kids and families out and about.
On Sundays, you can get your fresh vegetables at the bustling farmer’s market and in summer, enjoy free live music at the Concert in the Park series at Moraga Commons. A truly special place to raise a family.
