About Alameda County

Alameda County is in the East Bay region of California and gets its name from the Spanish word translating to either "a grove of poplars" or "a tree-lined street." Major cities within Alameda County include Alameda, Berkeley, Fremont, Newark, Oakland, and Union City, among others. The county was originally formed in 1853, encompassing the majority of Contra Costa County at the time along with a smaller section of Santa Clara County. The area began as Native American lands before the Spanish arrived; later, ranches, farms, and orchards took over the scene, and now, the area is largely urban and suburban. Oakland serves as the county seat. All in all, Alameda County houses around 1.6 million people. Alameda County is the 7th most populated county in California and has plenty to offer its residents and visitors. There are beautiful natural sites to explore, tons of shopping and dining opportunities in virtually every city, and museums and historical sites galore. Alameda County stays warm all year round but can have milder winters than many other places in California, perfect for those who want to experience the seasons without the frigid cold of a "traditional" winter.
