Orinda is the hidden gem of the East Bay: friendly neighborhoods, private retreats, top-rated schools and quaint shopping district.
When you dream of living in a town that’s family-friendly, serene, and still close to the urban center, Orinda is what you’re imagining. The schools are consistently ranked among the best in California and swim clubs and other sports activities abound. The shopping district has everything you need, including a beautiful, old-fashioned theater that shows first-run movies. Located right off Highway 24, Orinda has its own BART stop, yet in just a few minutes drive, you can be hiking or biking in some of the most beautiful natural settings imaginable: Tilden Park, San Pablo Reservoir, Briones Open Space and the Lafayette Reservoir.
