Fremont lies east of the southernmost point of San Francisco Bay. It is traversed by Highways 880 and 680 and very close to San Jose where there is an International Airport. Via the Dumbarton Bridge the San Francisco Peninsula is easy of access. Palo Alto and Stanford University are practically at the end of the bridge. Fremont and its environs were orange groves until the 1970s. Then the city grew and where once the only reason to visit the town was Mission San Jose now there is a large and thriving community. Part of its attraction is the location, especially as Bay Area Rapid Transit has a terminus there; BART will take the visitor to a good deal of the Bay Area quickly. There are a few large companies located in Fremont, but it is mainly a residential community with many fine houses well laid out and landscaped. In addition nearby in the Great Mall of the Bay Area, many fine golf courses and of course Silicon Valley. Fremont, being at the base of the Bay, has a moderate climate that normally escapes the fog that enters San Francisco Bay. Fremont offers the visitor and resident a lovely base in which to live or to use as a base for exploring the south Bay Area.
