In a Movoto Real Estate Blog, they ask if you are searching for Pleasantville? Well, they couldn’t guarantee that, but they think their pick for the Top 10 Cities will certainly welcome you with open arms.
Here is a gallery of the top 10.
Movoto used several sources to determine the Top 10 and goes on to say this about Petaluma:
“Okay, I am not making this up: many scenes from the movie “Pleasantville” were actually filmed in Petaluma, specifically, at the intersection of Petaluma Blvd. and Western Avenue.
It doesn’t just look like a city so caring that it must be fictional either, it actually is. It’s almost too good to be true. Just think about this: out of 140 cities in the U.S., Petaluma had the 12th lowest number of crimes. It also had the sixth highest number of counselors and mental health professionals per capita, and was among the top 30 for its percentage of residents who carpool.
It’s really no wonder this Sonoma-Marin Fair-hosting, Butter and Egg Days Parade-celebrating, Little League World Series-playing small city made the top of our list.”

Petaluma #1? Funny. My Mom, college aged daughter and I just spent the day in Petaluma in Sept. We were loaded with cash and set out to go shopping. Well, let me tell you this; we didn’t buy 1 thing. We are into small business shopping and the only person working in the shop that greeted us hello upon walking in was the nice waiter at The Wild Goat Bistro in the Petaluma Mill. So we ate lunch and left with disappointment. The people were so rude!!!!!
Thanks for your comment, and sorry for your bad experience. Hope you will give it another try in the future. I am in the downtown often and have not had the same experience.
This is awesome. Don’t care how the metrics work out. Just keep giving Petaluma some love!
