Alameda has an innovative business community mixing high-tech business parks with historic shopping districts. Tree-lined neighborhoods, many with lovely Victorian and Queen Anne-style homes built before the turn of the century, give a taste of the history of the region. Although there are many parks, beaches, and bike trails that make Alameda a wonderful place to live or visit, most of these areas are some distance from the Ferry terminal and require biking, hiking or transfer to bus or taxi to access them. To find out more about some of Alameda's points of interest visit www.ebparks.org. For complete transit connection information in Alameda, click here.

One of Alameda's most unique attractions is the Aircraft Carrier USS Hornet Museum located at Pier 3 at Alameda Point. The museum is open daily 10 a.m. - 5 p.m., and group tours are available by calling 510-521-8448 x232. The USS Hornet is one of the legends of naval history, with eight naval ships having carried its name and played major roles during battles with Britain in 1775 to combat in World War II. The carrier was also instrumental in the recovery of Apollo 11 and 12.The USS Hornet Museum is approximately 2 miles from the Ferry dock.
