Title: Pleasant uncrowded beach: Alameda Beach, California
Preparation: Address: 2351 Shore Line Dr, Alameda, CA 94501 We looked up Trip Advisor and Yelp and knew a little bit about the beach.
General opinion: It was a pleasant experience. No overcrowding as in famous beaches. There was sand for my 3 year old daughter to play with. The tides are mild and the water warmer than the main ocean, so wading is not cold.
Attractions and activities: Beach and downtown Alameda
Commute: We live in Fremont, so we drove to Alameda beach.
Things I wish I had known before: Parking is easy. It is a very pleasant beach to visit with family. Not crowded or "trendy"
