Hayward, CA Neighborhood Information

Tucked away on the sunnier side of the San Francisco Bay and positioned on the doorstep of exciting cultural scenes in both Oakland and San Francisco, Hayward offers a small-town feel that has access to big opportunities. For work, Silicon Valley is short drive across the San Mateo Bridge, where you can be part of the tech boom at Google, Facebook, and Apple. Take in the sites, visit the newly remodeled SFMOMA (San Francisco Museum of Modern Art), and treat yourself to the world-class food and dining that’s made the Bay Area a must for foodies everywhere. The best part is that you can work it all off in one of many Redwood-lined trails that surround the area. From the scenic shoreline to the rolling hills, Hayward is a lively city that is at the center of it all.
