Wondering where to take your four-legged best friend? Here are a few of my favorite dog spots in the East Bay:

Point Isabel Regional Shoreline

2701 Isabel Street, Richmond

With beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge, Marin, and the Bay, a day out in this park is enjoyable for dogs and their humans.

1205 Melville Sq. #204, Marina Bay - Just Sold

The East Bay is perfect for viewing wildflowers!

Rainfall this winter and spring has been at a record high. The last time it rained that much was in 1997 and I remember one thing that stood out: wildflowers! The best time to see them is mid-March to mid-April.

  2.    Sunol Regional Wilderness
  3.    Tilden Park
  4.    Black Diamond Mines Regional Preserve
  5.    Lake Chabot Regional Park

But honestly, I think that this year...
