San Leandro: Call It Home If You Like, Just Don't Call It And Hang Up
To the west of Altamont Pass, home of that festival that went awry so long ago, to the north of San Jose, and just south of Oakland is where you'll find San Leandro. Near to California State University of Hayward, and home to 85,000 ladies and gents (and their kids), Hayward is a San Francisco Bay city with a marina to prove it.
Today the city is firmly part of what's generically known as the ""East Bay,"" but long ago it belonged to the Ohlone natives who arrived some time a few thousand years before the year 0. (There's an ""Ohlone Avenue"" in nearby Albany, presumably named in their honor.) By the late 1700s the Spanish had arrived in the bay, and by a hundred odd years later the city was county seat of the then newly minted jurisdiction of Alameda. Lending its hand to the Civil War effort to end slavery and preserve the union, heck, you know the story, San Leandro and the neighboring city of Brooklyn (yep, a Brooklyn on the west coast) offered up a California militia company dubbed the Brooklyn Guard. Brooklyn has long since been integrated into the city of Oakland, but its contribution to Lincoln's war is much appreciated.
This place has seen its demographic profile change in some huge ways since the era of the post-World War 2 suburban boom. Unlike Oakland at the time, with its significant Black and Asian presence, in 1960 the city was over 99% non-Hispanic White. Today that figure has dropped to under 30%, and the suburbs are no longer a proxy for ""whites only.""
Here's a fun, local factoid for any alternative rock music fans out there: The music video for the song ""High and Dry"" by Radiohead is set in the city’s long-standing Dick's Restaurant and Satellite Sports Lounge. Another factoid: Customers love the place.
San Leandro Coming And Going
Let's face it, half the fun of being outdoors is the opportunity to enjoy California's ample sunshine and almost total absence of what most people would call weather. Wind, rain, snow, high highs and low lows are pretty much non-existent here. It's almost like being in a biodome. The city takes total advantage of this fact too when it invites you to enjoy the town's farmers markets, typically held on Wednesdays but stocked with naturally grown goodies you can enjoy any day of the week. So settle into that new apartment and then head on over to stock up the fridge with delicious local grub.
San Leandro's bay lovers also take advantage of the city's marina, which we already made mention of. The San Leandro Marina can boast of full service access to the bay, with 455 berths, a boat launch ramp, and two yacht clubs. Hotels, restaurants, and even golf are in close proximity, making the whole area a real people magnet. We're happy to announce that the fun doesn't stop at the water's edge either.
The city offers its full guide of what to do within its awesome borders, which you can see here. Enjoy apartment living in Northern Cali y'all!

Why should I move to San Leandro?
San Leandro is one of the oldest cities in California. Located in the East Bay area, San Leandro is considered a suburb of Oakland and San Francisco and boasts great views of the San Francisco Bay. Since the cost of living is lower in San Leandro than in its better known neighboring cities, San Leandro makes a good home base for commuters. The mostly temperate climate of San Leandro is also a draw.
How much should I expect to pay for utilities in San Leandro each month, depending on the time of year?
Utilities won't change too drastically from season to season because of the temperate climate in San Leandro. A family of three should expect to pay about $300+ per month. This depends upon your proximity to the coast, your family size, and the size of your home. As a general rule, people who live in coastal or near-coastal cities tend to pay less for cooling than do those who live more inland. Heating expenses are usually not much of an issue since there are few months when you really need to turn on the furnace; and then, it's typically at night.
Is San Leandro pet friendly?
San Leandro is fairly pet-friendly. Although it isn't home to any off-leash dog parks, the San Leandro Marina offers an area where you can bring your pets as long as they are kept on leash. There are a couple more coastal parks, like Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline to the north of the marina and Hayward Regional Shoreline to the south (located in nearby Hayward), that are good for spending time outdoors with pets as well. For hiking and camping with your pets, nearby Lake Chabot Regional Park is your best bet.
