“The East Bay’s hidden waterfront city offers spectacular three-bridge views, hiking trails, marinas, restaurants and cafes. The San Francisco Bay Trail, for bikes and pedestrians, runs several miles through Point Richmond providing access to the historic downtown.
The Municipal Natatorium, also known locally as the Plunge, is a landmark pool built in 1926. It is twice the size of an Olympic pool and the walls are decorated with murals.
The fairies of Point Richmond live in miniature custom-built homes on the tree trunks along Washington Avenue and sprinkled throughout other places. Keep walking to the Wave Garden with many succulent plants and great views of the San Francisco Bay.
Nearby there is a public beach in an undeveloped setting where you can picnic on the benches and watch the pelicans and sea gulls. It’s a lovely outing to a place it seems time forgot.”
