Alameda is located on an island next to Oakland in the San Francisco Bay. The city has a small-town feel with its Victorian homes and tree-lined neighborhoods. An invigorating climate, picturesque parks, historical business districts and numerous recreational opportunities offer Alameda’s 72,259 residents a special living environment. The Park Street business district is a bustling retail area with more than 70 historically significant buildings, including the Art Deco-style Alameda Theatre. Due to its proximity to the Bay, wind surfers and kite surfers can often be seen along Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive. From the beach there are also views of the San Francisco skyline and the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge. Public transportation includes the AC Transit buses (which include express buses to San Francisco) and two ferry services — the Alameda-Oakland Ferry and the Harbor Bay Ferry.
