Destination guide

Walnut Creek is laid-back East Bay

So, you're looking to enjoy all the delights of the San Francisco Bay Area without the stresses of the big city? You've come to the right place. With direct connections on the high-speed BART network all the way to Oakland and San Francisco itself, Walnut Creek vacation rentals offer a base up in the breezy mountain heights above the East Bay. There, humble shopping malls and charming wineries combine to create a town of quaint vibes, rustic ranches dot the green hills, and the Mount Diablo State Park beckons outdoorsy types to its rugged reaches.

Things to do

Walnut Creek brims with Californian history

Walnut Creek vacation rentals aren't just about finding a quiet spot that's within striking distance of Alcatraz, the Mission District, and the Golden Gate. There are plenty of immersive attractions right on the doorstep, too. Kids will love the fierce raptor cases and stalking deer of the Lindsay Wildlife Museum. History lovers can explore tales of early pioneers at the Shadelands Ranch. Cacti sprout for visitors with green fingers in the Ruth Bancroft Garden, and there's always the famous wineries of the Cali Valley to taste through.


Action and adventure in Walnut Creek

Balancing adventure and excitement with history trips and famous Californian sightseeing has never been easier than in Walnut Creek. Although just a stone's throw on the BART network to San Fran's iconic wonders, the town is also surrounded by beautiful walking routes like the Iron Horse Trail, and the panoramic picnic spots of the Mount Diablo State Park. Tours of the California wine valleys are also possible from here, and excursions to the historic ranches of old pioneer settlers in the West.


Wine tasting in the summer and fall in Walnut Creek

Summer is always a popular time to book those Walnut Creek vacation rentals, offering visitors a chance to taste their way through Californian delicacies and fine wines in the Walnut Creek Chamber Art & Wine Festival. For that, you'll want to search for places to stay in June. The joys continue throughout the warmer months, with the best trekking and foodie opportunities persisting well into the late-summer and fall months of August, September, and October.

Natural features

Sit on a perch above the East Bay in Walnut Creek

Walnut Creek has one of the most enviable locations in the whole of the East Bay sub region. It sits perched above the sprawl of Oakland and Berkeley, cascading down the slopes of sculpted Mount Diablo. The result is place that seems wholly detached from the city, and where trailheads and horse riding routes weave out into the hills directly from the center. Up on the paths of the Mount Diablo State Park is where you'll get the best views down over the Sierra Nevada and San Fran, and where you'll get to spot majestic bald eagles in the wintertime.
