Moving to Alameda?

Starting a business? Need general information and contacts to assist you?

Alameda is a gem located in the San Francisco Bay Area. It sparkles with all the brilliance of a large city but as an island, it lacks a lot of the commotion of a large metropolitan area.

We're easy to get to, but hard to leave.

If you’re considering a new location, a place where there are good schools, plenty of outdoor activities, abundant restaurants and things to do, as well as successful employers looking to hire, Alameda is the perfect place to call home.

Start with our Destination Alameda Magazine. It’s full of helpful information to get you started in the right direction and help you get to know the Island.
