Alameda is a unique city located on Alameda Island and Bay Farm Island, adjacent to Oakland, and on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay. The 19th-century bedroom community is known for its dazzling array of Victorian-era homes, many of which are surrounded by mature trees and decorated with beautiful gardens. Alameda is a highly desirable place to live, offering residents a vibrant downtown, packed with restaurants and shops, beaches, bird refuges, bike and pedestrian paths (the city includes more than eight miles of the San Francisco Bay Trail), open spaces, extensive picnic areas, shoreline parks, more than 3,400 boat slips, and spectacular views of San Francisco.
