All about

Albany, CA

Originally known as the City of Ocean View, Albany was incorporated as a city in 1908 an boasts a population size of just 16,444.

Albany is able to combine its small population with its central location in the greater San Francisco Bay area, giving apartment hunters the best of both worlds. In addition to the city's scenic natural landscape, Solano Avenue is the main street that provides residents with every possible service from small shops to some of the best restaurants in the Bay Area.

Solano Avenue is best known for the annual Solano Stroll, which is the East Bay's largest street festival. Since 1974, the city of Albany has hosted the Stroll which includes more than 500 vendors, non-profit organizations, entertainment and food booths.

The event, which takes place on the second Sunday of September, begins in the morning with the opening of Solano Avenue businesses as well as a parade of approximately 100 groups. Albany apartment tenants can enjoy some of the finest local dance, music and other performances during the Stroll.

The event also appeals to children, as a special kids area is set aside that offers giant slides, carnival games, jugglers, face painters, magicians and stilt walkers. In addition, Albany apartment tenants can enter the "Green Zone," which offers advice for residents to reduce global warming as well as displays of "green" technology including solar panels and tank-less water heaters. Environmental experts are also on hand to answer any other green questions.

The Solano Stroll is a free event that is open to people from across the country, but Albany apartment renters can take advantage of the excellent establishments the main street has to offer on a daily basis.
