San Leandro Located just south of Oakland and just east of San Francisco, San Leandro is becoming an ideal commuter city.
In 1856, San Leandro was made the county seat of Alameda county. Unfortunately, it’s located right along the Hayward Fault, and the courthouse was destroyed in 1868’s earthquake. Now, Oakland is the county seat.

The city houses JanSport sporting goods, North Face sporting goods, Ghirardelli chocolate, Otis Spunkmeyer cookies and a Coca-Cola Plant. Still, many residents of San Leandro work in San Francisco, Oakland and Silicon Valley.
