One of California’s original Hollywoods, on the edge of Silicon Valley and in the heart of East Bay, there is a host of things to do in Fremont, California for all ages. Best Western Plus Garden Court Inn is located close to the freeway, and just 10 miles away are the verdant hills just outside of the East Bay, where wineries and parks abound.
Fremont’s cityscape is defined by its history. We are 1 hour from San Francisco by car or by BART (public transit), though unlike many suburbs, when Fremont was amalgamated from five smaller towns, each area was carefully considered. This means that Fremont doesn’t have a singular downtown—although work is underway to build one! Instead, the city was deliberately sectioned into districts, where you can shop, admire nature, and explore. Over time, Fremont and nearby Newark and Union City have slowly grown together, and now are sometimes referred to jointly as the Tri-Cities.
