Where High Character Meets High Tech
Though geographically an island, Alameda is easy to access from Oakland, Emeryville, Berkeley, and San Francisco (there’s direct ferry service)! BART, Amtrak and Oakland International Airport are all conveniently close.
The appealing ambience and new construction of the area have attracted high-tech, clean-tech and bio-tech companies to locate here. The island is known for a fabulous flea market, Robert Crown State Beach, views of the San Francisco and Oakland skylines, several urban wineries and an emerging artisanal spirits community.
In the early 1900’s, Alameda was a resort destination, complete with beaches and Coney Island-style amusements. With its historic neighborhoods and inviting commercial districts, Alameda today combines Victorian charm with a hipster vibe.
