Live the Good Life in the East Bay

Experiencing East Bay living with Summerhill Homes

San Francisco is booming and continues to attract people who want to work, live or study in the area. While living within the city limit has its benefits: shopping, dining, plenty of entertainment options, if you’re looking for a little more room or a slightly slower pace of life, it’s worth expanding your sights to the surrounding cities. There are a lot of great cities and neighborhoods that are driving distance to San Francisco and other employment centers that will offer you something that’s hard to come by in San Francisco: space.

Whether you’re new to the area or are looking to snag a little bit more room for your family, here’s why you should consider looking eastward across the Bay Bridge to the East Bay. Contra Costa County is a hub for arts, culture, adventurers, and food lovers.


The Bay Area is home to several climate zones. While its overall Mediterranean climate means it’s temperate year-round, the East Bay is consistently warmer than San Francisco, meaning you get to enjoy all the outdoor activities like biking, hiking, camping, horseback riding, running and more.


There’s plenty to love about Contra Costa County. Nature is a common passion in East Bay residents, who enjoy access to 65 parks in over 100,000 acres, including more than 1,200 miles of trails at perennial favorites like Tilden Regional Park and Diablo Foothills Regional Park.

Contra Costa County is also within an hour’s drive to the coast, a few hours from the Redwoods in the north, and about a half-day’s drive to Yosemite National Park.


There’s also a plethora of dining, shopping and entertainment options as well. Not only is there great shopping and dining options within the Lamorinda corrider (Lafayette, Moraga and Orinda), there’s endless possibilities in nearby Walnut Creek, Oakland and Berkeley. You can enjoy the same level of fun in San Francisco in your own neighborhood!
