Alameda and Oakland magazines: treasure chest of fantastic information

Local Alameda and Oakland magazines are treasure chests of fantastic information
Best of Alameda 2012
I remember when we first moved to Alameda, I picked up a copy of the maiden issue of Alameda Magazine. I was so happy to read stories and reviews on several events, restaurants, and life in general in my adopted island city as well as the adjoining city of Oakland.

Since then, I have always looked forward to each issue.  The wealth of information is outstanding.

One of my favorites is the January-February 2008 issue that had articles about Alameda’s History such as when Alameda was famous for its beaches --- especially  Neptune Beach which was like the Coney Island of the west in the early 1900s.

Ten years later, Alameda Magazine and now also Oakland Magazine are thriving. I appreciate the fact that they are also online, and have links to previous issues. So they successfully cater to both audiences who favor print and online.Best of Oakland 2012

Every year, they come up with their “Best Of Oakland and Best of Alameda” issues ---- another way to discover local favorites.

Part of their service to the communities is launching the next issues by holding social events at local businesses. The next magazine launch  on July 12 will be held at FAZ, newest home for the "Bay Area's finest Mediterranean cuisine."

Here’s wishing Alameda/Oakland Magazine many years of continued success.



ALAMEDA CA. Moving here? Excellent reasons why it's a great place to live.

Great idea! We have a terrific magazine here in Carlsbad and I share it often with buyers, especially those from out of town, but I have yet to write about it! You did a great job showcasing these 2 publications.

Jeff -- thanks. I do enjoy these magazines. In the various cities where I lived, I counted on the local magazine to keep me informed about what the community offers.

Would love to see your post about Carlsbad.
