So, did anything surprise you about Alameda?
Thanks to everyone!
Yes, I'd always wanted to go to Alameda simply to see the view of SF, but, was pleasantly surprised by Alameda too. My first impression was terrible as the traffic driving down Park Street rivalled anything I've experienced in SF (part of it might have been we were late for my friend's appointment). However, once I got out of the car
and walked, I found Park Street and the surrounding area to be VERY pedestrian friendly. It had such a good, neighborhood feel to it, people driving by waving at friends on the street, people out for an afternoon walk or having lunch, etc. It was great!
What I didn't get a picture of was the fabulous art deco inspired entrance to the Webster St tunnel going back to Oakland. Absolutely beautiful!!
