Also known as San Pablo & Pinole
Although it may get less shine from the national press than its Bayside neighbors Berkeley and Oakland, Richmond has the secret advantage of being the that under-the-radar, underdog feel that makes it reminiscent of Oakland 20 years ago.
Richmond is honored to be the home the Richmond Ferry, A quick 30-minute ride will get you to Downtown San Francisco – A Bay Area Commuter’s Dream! Or, if you enjoy sticking to local, then you will love joining your neighbor to visit the Community Garden, or the Downtown Farmer’s Market on Wednesday.

Need a switch up from Arts & Culture? Richmond is the East Bay’s hidden gem, aligned with 32 miles of waterfront (more than any other city in the Bay Area). Numerous parks, like Alvarado Park, decorate the city of Richmond. Miller Knox Regional Shoreline: A beautifully situated shoreline picnic area, a secluded cove with swimming beach, a fishing pier, excellent panoramic views of the North Bay Area and a model railroad museum – all these attractions are part of 307-acre Miller/Knox Regional Shoreline in Richmond. If you are looking for an easy stroll, the 23-acre Point Isabel Regional Shoreline offers 2.5 miles of dog-friendly trails, a dog park paired with sweeping views of the Golden Gate and Bay bridges.
