Dublin has made the list as one of the best places to live in California and even the country with its big-city vibes, suburban spirit, convenient shopping and easy access to the best of the Bay Area. It’s life the way you want it, but if you need more of a reason to live here—we’ve got five right here. Right now.

1. Incredible Location

When you live in Dublin, that means you’re right smack dab in the middle of somewhere. You’re in a location with convenient access to major freeways and BART for an easy commute to Silicon Valley and all the Bay Area has to offer—whether it’s famous San Francisco destinations or mountainous regional parks. Plus, you’re a short trip away from world-class shopping centers and the Livermore wine country experience.

2. Endless Entertainment

Dublin is known for its grand community events, from the outdoor summer concert series at the Emerald Glen Park Amphitheater to the weekend-long St. Patrick’s Day celebration. Hometown spirit is alive and well in Dublin, but the fun doesn’t stop there. With easy access to BART and major freeways, you’re minutes to cheering on the A’s at the RingCentral Coliseum or sporting the colors of the Golden State Warriors at the Chase Center. Needless to say—Dublin knows how to bring the excitement.

3. Outdoor Recreation

This incredible living destination is nestled at the foot of Dublin Hills Regional Park, which means nature is never an afterthought. Acres of preserved open space and crowd-favorite outdoor locations, like Las Trampas Regional Wilderness Park, Mount Diablo State Park and the San Francisco Bay, are just minutes away—and the Iron Horse Regional Bike Trail starts right at your front door at Boulevard. You can consider hiking, biking and breathing in the fresh air part of your everyday when you live here.

4. Family Friendly

Dublin takes the cake for family-friendly living in the Bay Area. The Dublin Unified School District offers great educational opportunities for students of all ages with some of the most highly acclaimed schools in California. Plus, there are a number of green spaces, like Dublin Sports Grounds and Fallon Sports Park, where the kids can join Little League or run to their heart’s content. And did we mention The Wave Waterpark? There really is something for the whole family to enjoy here.

5. Convenient to No End

The best part about living in Dublin is being near just about everything. It’s home to some of the Bay Area’s greatest shopping malls, including Hacienda Crossings and Persimmon Place, which is walking distance from Boulevard. Eclectic eateries and high-end shops are just as close as the grocery store. And when it’s time to venture outside of Dublin, easy access to BART and major freeways makes it simple to take a daytrip to Alameda, browse the San Francisco Premium Outlets or take Instagrammable photos of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Dublin isn’t just a must-visit spot—it’s a great place to live. And buying a brand new home at Boulevard only adds to the experience with modern architecture, on-site themed neighborhood parks, The Rec Center and so much more.
