    An island vacation in Alameda

    Discover a wealth of West Coast fun in Alameda, an island getaway packed with family-friendly activities and tons of local history. San Francisco and Oakland are just a short drive away, so you’ll never run out of parks and trails to explore, tasty international dishes to savor, and insightful cultural sites to visit. After you locate your ideal Alameda vacation rental, you’ll find that the little island is the perfect escape from the neighboring big cities, whether you prefer to spend your days building sandcastles and learning to windsurf, or digging into the city’s aviation legacy at former military sites.

    Swim and surf in Alameda

    With the San Francisco Bay and Pacific Ocean beckoning, there are endless options for enjoying the sand and sea near Alameda, but you don’t have to leave the island for a fun beach day. Pack a picnic lunch and bring the family down to Crown Memorial State Beach, where you’ll find sand dunes and shallow, warm water perfect for swimming. Water sports like windsurfing and kiteboarding are popular here too, and in summer you can take lessons and rent boards to practice on. Bring your buckets and shovels if you plan to visit in June, when an annual sandcastle-building contest crowns the best creations.

    Flying high in Alameda

    Once the site of a United States Naval Air Station, Alameda preserves its military legacy at fascinating museums. The USS Hornet, a National Historic Landmark that served in World War II, has a Sea, Air and Space Museum located on the ship and more than a dozen historic aircrafts on display. Thrill seekers can try out the flight simulators, while kids will enjoy dressing up as sailors and learning to tie knots in an activity space. Close by, the Alameda Naval Air Museum tells the story of the former air station through a collection of photos, archived newspapers, model planes, and old uniforms and badges.

    Beautiful days in Alameda

    This part of California has pretty mild weather in every season, with comfortable daytime temperatures that typically call for no more than a light jacket, even in the winter months. Look for an Alameda vacation rental with a hot tub or fireplace to enjoy cool evenings year-round. Summer is the dry season, so you’ll have more opportunities to fly kites on the beach, bike the trails at nearby parks, or take a whale-watching boat tour. You’ll find that different whale species migrate through during different seasons, though, so you won’t miss out on the experience even if you come in winter.

    Alameda marine life encounters

    The waters around Alameda Island are a great place to view sea creatures, like the gray, blue, and humpback whales that pass by the San Francisco Bay area. For even more wildlife encounters, head to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which has more than 2,000 animal and plant species in several different ecosystems. There are miles of paths to explore and plenty of land critters to see, but don’t forget to look along the coast for harbor seals, sea otters, and porpoises. Alameda vacation rentals are in a great central location for discovering the park, which is spread out over 3 counties across the bay.
