Alameda is a uniquely charming east bay city in Alameda County, connected to neighboring Oakland by bridges and tunnels. Alameda has a small town feel, with lots of old world charm. The population of Alameda is about 75,000 people. Alameda has mature, tree-lined streets, plenty of waterfront, plenty of parks, beaches, a marina, and great views of San Francisco. Close to both Oakland and San Francisco, Alameda is situated in one of the choicest spots in the bay area, centrally located for commute purposes, yet isolated for privacy and an excellent quality of living. The weather is excellent, with cool breezes coming off the bay. Way back in 1900, Alameda was naturally connected to Oakland. At that time, it was an address for the affluent, who built large Victorians and Queen Annes, many of which still stand today. It was decided that a ship channel would be a good idea, and so one was dredged out, and Alameda became an island, connected to Oakland via three bridges and two tunnels. At that point, Alameda became home to sailors and other assorted blue collar workers. The military personnel soon followed, also, with the Navy and Coast Guard having a presence at Alameda. However, in 1997, the Navy closed a naval base and airfield and turned over 2,000 acres to the city. Debates continue over what the city will do with the land, but supposedly 5,000 to 10,000 new residents will be added over the next 10 years, if construction plans go as expected. These days, the military and blue collar folks are fewer in number, and are being replaced by younger, more white collar, college educated professionals who appreciate what the city has to offer. Alameda has about 20 parks, and 7 marinas. It also has a rarity in the east bay — an open, approachable shore, about 6 miles of sandy beach, operated as a regional park. (Historically, many other cities lost their shorelines to railroads and industry). Commute options include the Bay bridge, San Mateo bridge, BART (from Oakland), and even ferries. Commute to Oakland is very easy, and to San Francisco not too bad. The Oakland airport is nearby, too. Alameda has about 3,500 Victorian and Queen Anne homes — which represents about 10 % of the total houses in Alameda. In 2010, the California state census counted 32,003 housing units in Alameda, of which 12,997 were single family detached houses, 3,964 were single family attached homes, 14,742 were apartments, condos, or townhouses, and 300 were mobile homes. School rankings in Alameda score fairly high — generally in the 80th to 90th percentile of California public schools. You can reach the chamber of commerce at 510-522-0414.

The charming city of Alameda also lends its name to the county, though the neighboring city of Oakland is actually the county seat. Alameda is technically a peninsula and 3 islands — one tiny, one a Coast Guard base, and the main island where most housing is located. The peninsula, incorrectly called Bay Farm ISLAND, has some of the newest housing in the city. With its views, its weather, its parks, its bay access, its good commute, its peace and quiet, its small town old fashioned charm, and its overall quality of life, Alameda is easily one of the nicest cities in the East Bay. The commute and the schools are also decent. When you put all of these factors together, Alameda turns out to be one of the best addresses to have in the East Bay.
