Mount Diablo is a mountain in the Diablo Range, on the eastern side of Contra Costa County and the San Francisco Bay Area, southeast of both Concord
and Pleasant Hill
. The Mount Diablo Region offers dog lovers the perfect blend of location, outdoor recreation, great restaurants and cultural assets, not to mention affordable hotels and motels.
Concord has a vibe all it’s own, not to mention reasonably priced lodging and all manner of indoor and outdoor places to explore with your dog by your side. It might be discovering a new brew while exploring the thriving craft beer scene, trying poke for the first time or making an excursion into a nearby slice of wine country you never knew existed.
