Welcome to Alameda County
Alameda County is an island city located just west of Oakland in the San Francisco Bay. With over 10,000 buildings constructed prior to 1930, this architecturally and historically rich destination is well-known for its antiquity and small town charm. In 1975, Alameda County adopted the Historical Preservation Ordinance and created the Historical Advisory Commission. Five years later, this led them to adopt a Historic Preservation Element, which ultimately allowed them to become a Certified Local Government.
With its streets lined with trees and striking Victorian homes, Travel and Leisure magazine has dubbed Alameda County as one of the top 10 American "Coolest Suburbs Worth a Visit." And who can disagree? It has well-maintained beaches, boutique shopping, unique restaurants and bars, and to top it off, a 6 mile long shoreline complete with breathtaking views of San Francisco's extraordinary skyline. This culturally diverse community celebrates the arts by supporting civic and private groups in live theater, light opera, a community band, a historical museum, and art shows. There are infinite entertainment options in Alameda County; guests can enjoy the city's newly restored Art Deco movie palace, play a game of pinball at the Pacific Pinball Museum, dive into the San Francisco Bay at the Crab Cove's 800-gallon aquarium, jump back in time while at the Alameda Museum, and visit the Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet Museum. Consider bringing your next meeting to Alameda County and enjoy all that it has to offer your guests!
