City Guide for Apartments in San Leandro

Overlooking the San Francisco Bay situated north of Hayward, San Leandro is a busy Bay Area city that offers entertainment and easy access to cities like San Francisco and Oakland. Though it’s on the smaller side in terms of population compared to other cities in the area, San Leandro offers a unique living experience. Many of its neighborhoods feel more suburban, offering a chance to relax away from bustling city life.

San Leandro is known for its numerous parks and variety of restaurants offering different cuisines. Marina Park is a sprawling, 40-acre park that overlooks the bay and features walking trails, playgrounds, and even a dog run. You might even catch a few planes landing at Oakland’s airport, just north of the park. If you love golfing, San Leandro is the city for you. There are several golf courses in and around the area, including near the Anthony Chabot Regional Park, where there are miles of hiking trails and camping areas. The city is also close to Oakland Zoo, where you can take the kids for a day to meet some animals.

If you’re a commuter looking for a San Leandro apartment, take note that the average commute time is 24 minutes, which is less than the U.S. average. If you’re trying to commute to another city, the driving time during rush hour to San Francisco can take about an hour, the drive to Oakland takes about 45 minutes, and Hayward is just a short 15-30 minute drive during rush hour. If you’re a university student, you can find some cheap apartments in northern San Leandro and commute to your school.

Old San Leandro makes up part of the downtown area and features many older, architecturally beautiful homes.
