I lived near Concord and aside from the movie theater there it is a town that I am not that fond of. It border Pleasant Hill and Sun Valley Mall, but is kind of run down for the most part. The actual down town area is kind of small and different from the rest of the city.

Favorite place is the Movie theater there. Least Favorite place is around the bart station and it's a city that's kind of difficult to navigate if you take a wrong turn.
