Discover Small Town

Albany, California

Enjoy small-town vibes in the little town of Albany  just north of Berkeley. Known for its exceptional grade schools, Albany’s gently rolling residential streets like Marin and Portland are home to charming bungalows and smaller homes of every vintage. 

Independent businesses line Albany’s main shopping street, Solano Avenue, also home to the annual Solano Stroll street fair. Meanwhile, down by the Bay the Albany Bulb and Beach drop you in nature, with a retro artsy flair. (You’ll have to visit to see what I mean!)

If you look at a map of Albany, you’ll notice Berkeley’s Thousand Oaks neighborhood adjacent to Albany and Solano. This whole area — with houses built around ancient granite outcroppings — and stone walls lining many twisting, turning streets, is pure magic.

Discover Albany on the city website and through home tours with Susie!
