The City Of Albany, CA

Living near San Francisco can have its perks, you know. A small town like Albany gives you so much flexibility when it comes to where you want to work, send your kids to school, and where you like to party. I know many folks who have moved from across the U.S. to get a taste of this California lifestyle. As far as shopping, I mean come on we are in Cali! You can stop by the Northface Outlet, Cosco Wholesale can be found, and many more options for you to get everything you need in one place. One of my favorite spots was the Albany Taproom, known to many as one of the original spots to enjoy yourself after a long day. Keep in mind that living in Albany means that you are right smack in the middle of the famed Silicon Valley, and jobs are everywhere! Hey if you need to go back to school to get that degree, don't forget about UC Berkely right next door. I hope you give us a visit here soon!
