Alameda is a destination city for those looking for a small town feel in a beautiful island location. Nicknamed “The Island City” Alameda is only a ferry ride away from San Francisco. The city has a rich history which has left it with an impressive variety of housing styles, including Queen Anne Cottages, Colonial Revivals, Craftsman Bungalows and Victorians. Residents live in a patchwork of charming neighborhoods ranging from older homes and flats, to apartment buildings and contemporary condominiums. Alameda is a diverse, welcoming community where there is always something fun to do!
Families and those who enjoy quiet streets and an active lifestyle.

Active lifestyles including: hiking, biking, water sports and tons of great eateries.
Alameda is steeped in history but exudes a mellow, casual vibe that feels more like a laid-back California beach town than a suburb.
With a beach, beautiful parks, bike and hiking trails and top-notch bars and restaurants there is always something to do in Alameda. The island is also close enough to take day trip getaways to wine country or San Francisco, Sausalito, Tiburon or Angel Island.
Alameda is famous for its historic Victorian homes and loved for its waterfront location and small-town feel. We have record-low crime rates, an excellent school system and a parks and recreation system that excels far above other Californian cities. The list of things that make Alameda spectacular goes on and on, but the best way to find out is to become a part of the community.
