CASTRO VALLEY
California, U.S.A.
THE BAY RANCH TOWN
Welcome to Castro Valley, California.
This city of around 60,000 inhabitants was named after a Mexican soldier, Don Guillermo Castro. Back in the day, Castro Valley was known as a chicken ranch town, but it grew to become a bedroom community where workers would stay and commute elsewhere. Today, people both live and work in the area but many still travel to employment centers in larger Bay Area communities. The Castro Valley has one main commercial center, The Castro Village complex, where you'll find a number of great restaurants and stores. The village features food cultures that will satisfy a plethora of preferences, like Mexican, Indian, Asian and much more. Check out Don Jose, a family-owned restaurant that has been around since 1979, serving authentic Mexican food that will make your mouth water. The Castro Village Bowl is also located here in the center, and is a popular spot for residents to gather for a fun night together with beer and sportsmanship. The Lake Chabot Regional Park offers outdoor recreation like boat rentals and hiking, in a green landscape ideal for BBQ's and picnics. Another popular spot is the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, where rodeos are held regularly. The ranch is a fun place where town folks and tourists come to watch bull riding and calf-roping, and take part in a number of festive events. Wine-connoisseurs should check out the Westover wine yards, where you can try out and learn about a plethora of red and white wines, as well as their large selection of exquisite port.
