Across from the glimmering San Francisco Bay is Alameda, a city that offers great views of the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and the San Francisco skyline. Alameda is an ethnically diverse community and is known as a place that fosters activism and political engagement.
Residents here have access to the high-ranking Alameda Unified School District along with healthcare excellence at Alameda Hospital.
If you're imagining a mid-century modern California city, think again: 10 percent of all houses in Alameda are Victorian style, and a historic Park Street Business District has several buildings dating back to the 19th century. Alameda's striking style means it's often used as a setting for Hollywood movies.
