It's 156,000 residents enjoy a diverse and vibrant lifestyle with excellent mass transit, a very separate identity, and a near perfect location.

In Town Swimming
Culturally, the options of both San Francisco and Oakland can keep even the most inveterate culture vulture happy. Closer to home, there's the Historical Society Museum which is fascinating for learning the area's background. Hayward is also home to one of the Bay area's favorite recreational areas, Don Castro Park. You'll find great swimming, fishing areas and even jogging and hiking trails and so close to your Hayward apartment.
While great food places are found all over Hayward, the city center is by far the largest concentration of good places. Val's Burgers is a 50's style place, and you may find yourself sharing a meal with a celebrity. It's that visited. Banchero's Italian Dinners is a favorite on Mission Boulevard, which is a great area for exploring restaurants. La Pinata is fantastic Mexican food, and don't miss the Siam Palace which is on Foothill Boulevard and has legions of faithful and long time followers. Wherever your Hayward apartment is located, you'll be near some good places and finding them is half the fun!
A Plus on B Street
If The Bistro is near your new Hayward apartment, count yourself lucky. It's a great corner bar type place that has the best live music in town. It's on B Street and every night has a different type of music from jazz to rock. The Turf Club has great DJs on weekends, and the Rainbow Room is full of pool tables, arcade games and fun patrons.Buffalo Bill's is a very good brew pub, and is very mellow too. If you're looking for smaller and really local, try out Uncle Roy's. While you're bound to find cool places close to home, it is a great starting point.

Map & Local Information
Get answers about Hayward from local experts or tell us what you love about it.
Is Hayward famous for any kind of restaurant or food in particular? What's the local favorite?
Featured on the Food Network, Hayward's favorite burger joint Val's Burgers serves up what many consider to be the best burgers in the Bay Area. This old school hotspot grinds their own fresh meat daily and cooks up thick, charbroiled, made-to-order burgers, onion rings, extra crispy fries, and homemade shakes made with Bud's Ice Cream! The portions are generous and the prices are reasonable, but be sure to carpool here, as the parking lot is small and tends to fill up quickly. Also, make sure to bring cash, as Val's does not accept credit cards, and be prepared for a wait (up to 45 minutes during peak hours), but as any patron will tell you, it's well worth it!
