Hercules, a Quiet Bedroom Community

I live in Hercules, CA and I look forward to each day here. Hercules was named after the Hercules Powder Company, which used to own the land as part of their factory. We are a bedroom community, situated near Berkeley, CA. Our city has one company, Bio Rad Laboratories located in the north of town. We have a large and renoved park in the middle of town that is just the place for picnics, concernts and other events. Recently, more shops, stores and restaurants have been developed due to the new housing built by the shoreline. It is easy to jump on Highway 80 to reach any place in San Francisco, Oakland or San Jose. We don't have a collage in town, but UC California at Berkeley is just down the road and one of the best schools in the country. Our streets were named in groups by the developers, so one lives in the flower, bird, tree or island regions of the city. Nightlife is quiet here, but the whole of the San Francisco Bay Area is in easy reach.
