Oakland’s Rockridge has become one of the most coveted East Bay neighborhoods. Residents love its charm, walkability, community feel and easy access to transportation. It features early-century bungalows, tree-lined streets, and a main street lined with one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants that would make any foodie swoon.
This hamlet at the foot of the Oakland Hills, which started out as a sleepy burb, was named for its beautiful rock outcroppings and old quarry. Now it’s a vibrant community anchored by the Rockridge BART station and College Avenue (the main commercial street).
