Pleasanton is a town that knows how to clean up its act! Once considered “The Most Desperate Town in the West”, where bandits and desperados took refuge and shootouts were common, the town was number 63 on Money’s list of “The Best Places to Live” (2010) and bears the distinction of being named one of “Americans’ Top Hometown Spots” in the United States by Forbes (2009).
