Despite the fact that we can barely drive 10 miles in the Bay Area without hitting water, there aren’t very many habitable islands around us. One notable exception is Alameda. Alameda is a quick hop from Oakland. It’s just north of the Oakland Airport and immediately across the bay from San Francisco. But as you’d expect from an island, life in Alameda is a bit quieter and slower paced.
Once a Naval base, Alameda is now one of the most desirable cities in the East Bay. With a population of around 75,000 people, Alameda is far from one of the Bay Area’s biggest cities, but that doesn’t mean it’s sleepy. Alameda’s downtown area offers shopping and dining to rival its bigger neighbors. Once a month during warmer weather, the enormous Alameda Flea Market and Antiques Faire attracts visitors from all over California.
If architecture is your jam, there are thousands of beautiful older homes, with styles ranging from Victorian to Craftsman to Midcentury Modern, peppered throughout the island. With a median home cost of around $1 million, Alameda is more expensive than its neighboring cities.
Alameda has been home to a number of musicians, actors, sports stars and other celebrities, including current California Governor Gavin Newsom. At Ace Moving, we don’t care if you’re rich or famous. We treat all of our customers like they’re VIPs, and we have since 1984. Maybe that is why we’re Alameda’s five-star mover.
Like most of the Bay Area, Alameda is diverse in just about every sense of the word. Ace Moving is ready for just about anything our customers ask of us.
