Alameda is an island city in Alameda County of California’s Bay Area, making it is close to both Oakland and San Francisco. A few hundred years ago the island was actually a connected to Oakland via a peninsula of marshland, but by the time the city was founded the sea had covered it. Alameda has a very popular beach called Neptune Beach, which is often compared to Coney Island. Interestingly, Neptune Beach is said to have served the first ever snow cone.
