A mere 20 minutes from urban downtown San Francisco is humble Orinda, a newer and always changing up and comer on the Northern California coast! The town has been in development since the early 1900’s but has only just been incorporated as of the 1980’s, making the current population and economy of the town that more impressive. The family friendly Orinda real estate community has a calming natural beauty that lies in contrast with the city just near it, and creates a perfect oasis for a family looking for the peace of a small environment with the convenience of the big city a short drive away.
Excellent schools and a rich history makes the environment incredibly well rounded and fun to be a part of, and it is also extremely safe in the region. The unified culture brings the people living in Orinda together through events, programs, and an involved local government dedicated to bringing the best for their neighbors. Orinda continues to amaze residents and guests alike with its vibrant entertainment and culture, made possible in part by the historical art deco Orinda Theater. This theater was restored to its original grandeur and promotes a sense of creativity within the community that shines through with its citizens! Other local theaters like the California Shakespeare Theater and the well known Community Center and Public Library put on many shows featuring the residents of Orinda and those nearby.
With a locale near the Bay Area brings many lovely establishments for dining, shopping, and more to grow. Many local parks and community centers give patrons a great place to experience the great weather and beautiful scenery, and they are all great places to hold an event or occasion. Family friendly Orinda is sure to give any city-life craving family what they need, while catering to their needs as parents, residents, and businessmen/women!
Orinda is a hidden gem in the east bay. With cute downtown and a rural feel to the area you might think you were in a small upscale country town, but it is nestled in-between Berkeley and Walnut Creek and many of those living here work in San Francisco, Oakland or along the 680 corridor.
With near perfect weather, a BART station within walking distance to downtown and a community once voted 2nd most friendly in the US (by Forbes), Orinda has become a very warm, welcoming and involved community.
Home prices are a bit on the high side but with that, you get a wonderful community, easy access to surrounding towns and community events such as the local theater and park activities.
