The East Bay is that part of the Bay Area that runs along the eastern shore of the San Francisco Bay. It is a diverse region that includes the Bay Area’s largest and busiest port in Oakland, the flagship campus of the University of California located in Berkeley, and a number of important research laboratories, While those areas on the bay tend to be quite urban, the areas east of the Caldecott Tunnel unfold into rolling hills hosting large suburban homes. BART, the commuter line that connects much of the East Bay to the job hubs in Oakland and San Francisco, began service in 1972. This spurred the construction of suburban neighborhoods reaching out to Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasanton and beyond.
Blessed with lovely grassy hills dotted with oak trees, many regional parks, and Mt Diablo where on a clear day you can see the Sierras, the East Bay provides attractions to all that enjoy the outdoors. Berkeley, with its University influence, is home to Zellerbach Auditorium and Cal Performances which showcase musical, dance, and dramatic productions. Foodies will be impressed with the array of notable restaurants throughout the East Bay.
The housing is as varied as the culture. Alameda, known for its Victorian homes is also the location of one of the largest antique faires in Northern California. The homes of the Oakland and Berkeley Hills are blessed with arguably the best views in the Bay Area, looking across the bay to towards the San Francisco skyline with both the Bay Bridge and Golden Gate Bridge in site. Further east, in the suburbs, you will find expansive homes on large lots and a smattering of golf and tennis clubs to while away the weekends. Along with a substantial job market, the Northern East Bay communities will provide any lifestyle you desire.
