San Francisco’s East Bay Area is an extraordinary blend of scenic beauty, urban sophistication, and rural country charm. With top-notch public schools, an excellent public transportation system, thousands of acres of open spaces and regional parks, and an architecturally diverse real estate market, this region on the sunny side of the Bay offers a first-rate environment for work and play.
With hundreds of public schools, and dozens of private schools, the quality of education in the East Bay is a mixed bag. Many East Bay communities have public schools that rank among the top schools in California and the nation. The East Bay is also home to a large variety of private schools and academies, many with traditional academic curriculum and others with art-based, music, or bilingual focus.
Location! Location! Location! Living in the Bay Area, you are only a short drive from high quality national and state parks - Mt. Diablo, Yosemite, Death Valley and Kings Canyon, just to name a few. You also are no more than 3 hours away from the snow-topped Sierra Mountains for your skiing get-aways or a trip to Reno or Tahoe for a little gambling. If you head west, you could hit the coast to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Half Moon Bay, San Francisco or Bodega Bay. There are so many places we are lucky to have in our own backyard!
The Bay Area boasts some of the state's most diverse climates. We get everything from the snowfall on Mt. Diablo to the warm 'California sun'! You have your inland, warmer temps, to you Bay and hillside breezes.
