      I've lived all over the beautiful state of California and I can honestly say that Alamo is one of the best areas in the whole state to call home. Living in Alamo (a suburb of San Francisco Bay/East Bay) puts you close to all the action without having to live in the middle of it! Absolutely everything is so great about this place! Perfect weather year round, almost nonexistent crime rate, great schools, strong housing and job markets, and people who seem to be happy all the time! I can't imagine even wanting to live somewhere else!

      If you come to Alamo be sure to check out the Food Tours of San Francisco where you will get to visit and sample some of the best restaurants and their fare in the city. Definitely visit the famous Oakland Zoo and take the San Francisco Armory Tour, and don't miss out on a visit to Urban Alley for some great bars, food, and beer gardens!
