A good sense of residential and business opportunities are found in Albany, with large houses and many businesses. Solano Avenue, a pedestrian street lined with shops and restaurants, is one of the more renowned retail areas on the city. A very traditional neighborhood, Albany is home to a good selection of schools for students of all grades as well as public libraries and many other educational resources. Community events, childcare/teen and senior centers, volunteer opening, and plenty of recreational opportunities keep residents busy and well-cared for. Other local special events include Music in the Park; Dinner with Albany; the Green, Red, White, and Blue Celebration; the Spring Art and Music Festival; and even a current community Bike Challenge! With its beautiful, Californian views and quiet residential atmosphere, it is no wonder that many call Albany home! It is sure to be a place of continued development as visitors discover this city to be homey and quiet, a perfect starting place for all other aspects of life.
