About the location
The Emeryville Peninsula, located just north of the Bay Bridge, contains a marina and yacht harbor, restaurants, and a neighborhood shopping center. Free shuttle buses take you to the BART station and around town. At rush hours there are direct express shuttles to BART. There are car rides to the city in the AM.
There are opportunities to shop in the central part of the town and plenty of local restaurants and cafes in which to dine. Emeryville has local artists art throughout the city and several POPOS--Privately-owned public open spaces, that are worth exploring. You can also find plenty of these in SF.
Berkeley University is approximately four miles away as is the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. We have many open areas to hike throughout the bay area. Oakland Museum is a BART ride away and is a wonderful, local gem.
Great restaurants all around; it's a gourmet world to explore.
