Boulevard is an experience – surrounded by plenty of places to explore and hidden wonders to be discovered. And it’s all just a quick trip away from your new home.

A short drive across the bay will bring you to the bustling city of San Francisco. Stop by the spectacular Golden Gate Bridge. Hit a trendy dining spot at Crocker Galleria. Pick up a souvenir at Fisherman’s Wharf. Or browse an array of shops at the Embarcadero Center. For those entertainment seekers, visit the city’s Civic Center and discover historic theaters and sleek performing arts venues.

All you have to do is find the 5 and head north to hit California’s capital, Sacramento. Bask in the stunning architecture. Learn more about the rich history. And walk the halls of the California State Capitol Museum. Next stop is Old Sacramento, studded with riverfront restaurants, bars, museums, theaters and kitschy shops. The best part – these streets are filled with history.

Roll right up to San Jose after a quick trip south on the 680. Give into curiosity and tour the peculiar Winchester Mystery House. Take to nature and hike around the rolling hills that surround the big city. Make your way downtown for a bite at the popular San Pedro Square Market. Or keep your littles busy with the hands-on displays at The Tech Museum of Innovation.

For those looking for some fun under the sun, head to Santa Cruz for a day at the beach. Set up camp in the sand. Relax in the warm rays. Surf the waves. And after, go for a stroll down the iconic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk. Take a ride on the historic Giant Dipper roller coaster. Go for the win at the arcade. And grab a bite at the bright, colorful booths.

Now that summer is here, it’s the perfect time to explore all there is to see and do around your new home at Boulevard.
