While its name might make you picture an industrial city in the Northeast, Pittsburg, CA, is anything but. Located right on the edge of San Francisco Bay, about 30 miles northeast of Oakland, Pittsburg offers its residents the ability to drive or walk just a few blocks to a sunny shoreline.
The Pittsburg Marina is a big draw for boaters in the area, but the scenery and activity around the marina also attract other Pittsburg residents. Delta Discovery Cruises, for instance, sets sail from the Pittsburg Marina, letting tourists, visitors and residents alike participate in a variety of cruises. A brunch cruise sails on Saturday and Sunday mornings, serving coffee, tea, juice, and champagne while live jazz or blues music plays in the background. On a sunset dinner cruise, you can enjoy a fine dining experience while learning about the history of the delta.
Pittsburg has plenty to offer its residents on shore as well. A weekend favorite for Pittsburg residents and visitors is the self-guided public art walk, which traverses through Old Town Pittsburg. Art lovers will be able to see several statues, like "The Steelworker" and "Our Lady of Pittsburg" as well as the colorful Heritage Plaza Mural. After the walk, residents can enjoy one of Pittsburg's dining destinations, the EJ Phair Brewing Company, where craft beers and a plate of fish and chips make for a refreshing dinner.
