Hello Jane,

Ditto on Shirley's answer. I also think it varies within each town depending on the home's location.
Happy to show you both communities so you can see for yourself.

Thanks for asking!

Having lived in Danville, where my allergies began due to all the dry grasses, and having lived in Orinda/Lafayette for the last fifteen years, my allergies are next to nothing in comparison.
Being a native Californian, I never had allergies when I lived in the city verses the suburbs.
I was told by a doctor once, that when you live in the city, due to all the cement, one suffers less than when they come to the suburbs and the lands of green grasses, trees and shrubs.
This is my own personal experience. My son lives in Walnut Creek and sneezes. I rarely sneeze.

This is purely anecdotal but I am allergic to much grass pollen, especially rye grasses. I lived in Orinda for a couple of yeras and now I live in San Ramon but I also spent a year in Danville. I am sorry to say that I suffered just as much in all locations.

Hi Jane, I have to say your question tested my searching capabilty; however, I found a site that I think you will find quite useful. This site allows you to compare the pollen count of two zips:
