Live

Away from bustling metropolitan areas sits peaceful Orinda. Many flock here for more yard-space, a quieter lifestyle, and gorgeous hiking trails. Another perk for commuters is its close proximity to nearby Oakland and San Francisco. The area also boasts a warmer climate than San Francisco proper. The sunny climate lends itself to the generally friendly culture and laid back attitude. Neighbors regularly organize Fourth of July parades, wine socials, and pumpkin carving contests. Home styles range from palatial hillside estates to simple, contemporary ranch homes. Fun fact, Orinda's upscale vibe and easy access to SF/Oakland have made it a haven for sports stars like Steph Curry!

 

Work 

Commute
Commuting from Orinda is a breeze. The city has its own BART station in the middle of town, one train that only runs to SF with no stops, the Caldecott Tunnel with four bores, and even its own casual carpool pick up downtown.
