Downtown Alameda Welcomes a Diverse Mix of Businesses
Alameda is blessed with a diverse community. This is reflected in just about anywhere one travels on the island. It is also reflected in the mix of businesses that co-exist in Downtown Alameda.
The downtown businesses have long catered to different cultures, different age groups, and people who have different interests. Whether it’s dining, learning, playing, relaxing, or working, Downtown Alameda always has something new that brings people together.
Recently added to the diverse mix of businesses are a new Hawaiian restaurant, a school that teaches foreign languages and culture to all ages, and a shop that provides a friendly place for kids and adults to play board games (welcome back, D20 Games!).
The next time you’re in Downtown Alameda, take time to reflect on the diverse collection of businesses. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at what you find… and where you find them.
