The neighborhood is family-oriented; expect occasional sounds of dogs barking or children playing.
The South Shore shopping center is 3/4 miles away, with plenty of shops and restaurants. The Park Street area is about 2.5 miles away and offers more great restaurants, entertainment, and Alameda's restored Art-Deco movie theatre.
Alameda is a safe and quiet island oasis in the hustle of the SF Bay Area, but offers plenty of entertainment and sight-seeing without leaving the island.
The town is very family-oriented, and has lots of bike lanes, parks, and high walkability.
Getting to San Francisco is quick and comfortable - use the ferry (from the Main St terminal), bus (express bus to downtown SF leaves from 2 blocks away), or BART from Oakland.
Getting to the I-880 freeway and the Bay Bridge is quick - driving to downtown SF takes 25-30 minutes outside of rush hour.
The beach is just steps from the house and part of Crown Memorial State Beach. It is 3 miles long and a favorite of local families during sunny weekends. It offers great wind surfing and kite surfing conditions for beginners and advanced surfers. A surf school and rental shop can be found just a few yards from the house. A stand-up paddle school and rental shop is located not far away at Ballena Bay.
Washington Park is just around the corner, offering public tennis courts, playgrounds, basketball courts, and much more.
