About Albany


The Small Town City


If you’re looking to live in a city with a small town vibe, Albany is the perfect setting for you! Located within the greater San Francisco Bay area, directly east of the Golden Gate Bridge, Albany is hailed as a safe, community-oriented city, with strong services and programs for youth, families, and the elderly.


The “Main Street” Solano Avenue consists of pedestrian-friendly small “mom and pop” shops, inviting global cuisine restaurants, clothing boutiques, cozy cafes, antique dealers, bookstores and even a movie theater. The annual Solano Stroll closes Solano Avenue to traffic for the festive open air parade and fair, which draws close to 100,000 residents and visitors. There’s someplace on this strip that will make every family member happy!


Albany primarily consists largely of picturesque single-family residential homes and expansive small businesses. Families embrace various fitness, outreach, scholastic, performance,community and arts events. The Albany Unified School District proudly boasts a highly ranked national public school standing.


Recreational opportunities for the entire family are easy to find and enjoy, including the newly created East Shore State Park, the San Francisco Bay Trail, Golden Gate Fields Race Track, and four-legged furry family members are welcomed to run, play fetch, and take walks throughout the many park areas!
