The East Bay, comprised of Contra Costa and Alameda Counties, is located on the eastern shore of the San Francisco and San Pablo Bays. It encompasses approximately 1,540 square miles and over 36% of the Bay Area’s population and workforce live in the East Bay. This region consists of highly urbanized cites such as Oakland, Berkeley, Concord, Hayward and Walnut Creek as well as less densely populated towns such as Pleasanton, Dublin, Danville, Martinez, San Ramon and Livermore.

The East Bay’s housing and commercial space is typically more affordable than the surrounding areas of San Francisco and San Jose. Ease of transportation within the region and to surrounding areas adds to the enticement of the East Bay for people and businesses alike. The East Bay’s major rail transit service, Bay Area Rapid Transit System (BART), connects the region internally and with the city of San Francisco. There are also two San Francisco Bay ferry systems linking the East Bay to San Francisco.

This region is one of the nation’s leading technology development hubs with research, development, and manufacturing in the areas of biotechnical, biofuel, semiconductor, clean technology and digital art. It is home to the University of California, Berkeley, the nation’s top-ranked graduate research institution as well as three of the nation’s leading national laboratories including Lawrence Livermore Labs. The East Bay has also attracted large corporations and is headquarters to Kaiser Permanente, Chevron, and Safeway.

East Bay living is diverse in arts, food and recreation, ideal for families and individuals. This region offers some of the best schools in the state, consistently scoring higher than the state average. The East Bay is Northern California’s oldest wine region and home to over 80 wineries, has 57 golf courses and is the only place in California with three professional sport franchises: football (Oakland Raiders), baseball (Oakland A’s) and basketball (Golden State Warriors). The East Bay Regional Park District is the nation’s most extensive urban park system featuring over 108,000 acres, 65 parks and more than 1,200 miles of trails.
