Exploring the Jewel of the East Bay – Senior Living in Walnut Creek


If you or a loved one are considering a move to a senior living community or Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC), many factors have an effect on which place is the right place—and one of the factors that many seniors overlook is location. Today’s modern seniors don’t want to live in an isolated community with no connection to the surrounding area. They want to be in the middle of things, with happening neighborhoods and metropolitan areas nearby, so there’s never a shortage of things to do or places to explore.  

Located in the “Jewel of the East Bay,” the senior living community Viamonte at Walnut Creek offers the best that Northern California lifestyle has to offer. Just 30 minutes from Oakland and roughly an hour from San Francisco and San Jose, Viamonte puts residents close to three blossoming cities—among numerous other coastal areas and natural parks.

Beyond all that, Viamonte’s residents get to call Walnut Creek home. Because of its proximity and access to multiple forms of public transit, no senior living community compares with Viamonte at Walnut Creek. The CCRC is part of The Orchards at Walnut Creek, a dynamic mixed-use lifestyle center that features the finest architectural and landscaping designs. It also features a state-of-the-art grocery store, retail shops, and unique outdoor social spaces—so Viamonte and its residents will stay an integral part of all the exciting things going on in the area. To learn everything Walnut Creek has to offer, and why it’s an ideal location, read on!


Viamonte is situated alongside shaded woodlands under the peak of Mt. Diablo, providing a tranquil, natural setting for residents to enjoy every day. The community is also located just minutes from the bustling multi-generational retail, dining, and social center of downtown Walnut Creek, CA. Because of this, Viamonte puts you at the intersection of nature and culture, to revel in the best of both worlds of California living.

Then there’s downtown Walnut Creek, a pristine area that consistently attracts visitors from all over the Bay Area and beyond. You can stroll down Main Street’s local boutiques, or shop in Broadway Plaza’s upscale stores. The town boasts more than 100 restaurants and over 200 stores—so whatever you’re in the mood for, Walnut Creek has it.  Walnut Creek has been voted the best shopping town in the East Bay in the past, and it’s made Livability’s top 10 Best Foodie Cities.

This is your place. Walnut Creek is famous for top-class events, such as the annual Walnut Creek Chamber Art & Wine Festival, which will celebrate its 39th consecutive year in 2020.
