California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.
Concord is a city in Contra Costa County, California, USA. It is considered one of the major suburbs of Oakland and San Francisco.
As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 121,780. Until 1995 the city was the eastern terminus of the Concord line of Bay Area Rapid Transit commuter train system, the line has since been extended eastward to Pittsburg and Bay Point. Concord has been primarily a bedroom community for San Francisco and Oakland over the last forty years, but during the last decade, some corporations with strong Bay Area regional ties, such as Chevron and Bank of America, have established extensive back-office operations there, diversifying the local economy.
Concord is also the home of the annual Concord Jazz Festival and the Concord Records jazz record label. Concord's Mount Diablo High School is home to several acclaimed California academies, specifically the Digital Safari, a three-year program involving the integration of multimedia with the core curriculum through integrated, project-based learning. The headquarters of the Kabul Soccer Club is located in Concord.
Concord's De La Salle High School is home for the record winning streak of 151 games set by the football team between 1992 and 2004. During that span, De La Salle won 12 California North Coast sectional championships, and was named national champion five different times.
A city known for its historic myths and traditions, scenic beauty, cooperative people and luxurious hotels and cottages, Concord is one of the favorite holiday destinations for most of the vacation lovers.
