San Leandro, CA was one of the destinations on my California trip in late 2008. Overall, I was very pleased with the excellent golfing and shopping in San Leandro. San Leandro is a fine mix between small city and waterfront town with a gorgeous Marina, four shopping centers and a fair selection of restaurants.
San Leandro will really shine for fans of golf. I was thrilled to visit the Tony Lema Course at Monarch Bay. The beautiful Tony Lema Course features breath taking views of the San Francisco bay from every single hole and is the second largest course in California. The Marina Course at Monarch Bay is another great course featuring a great fairway lined with beautiful trees. Golfing is not the only thing to do in San Leandro although it may be the best thing to do.
The Marina Square mall provides an ample shopping experience with a nice food court. The Westgate center is another of the four malls in San Leandro that also provides a rich shopping experience. San Leandro does not offer much in the way or nature or family activities. The two bowling centers in San Leandro are as close as you'll get to a family activity. San Leandro will make a great stop for golf fans or those just looking for a quiet getaway. San Leandro does not offer much for those looking for a nightlife or a family destination.
