Geographically, this county is almost synonymous with the term 'East Bay' and spans many cities and areas. It's reaches go as far north as the Berkeley hills, as east as towards the Livermore Valley, and as far south as bordering Santa Clara county.

Historically, Alameda County was  derived from a larger portion of Contra Costa County, and a smaller portion of Santa Clara county. Much of its present day urban region with major cities was developed as a suburb of San Francisco in the last two previous centuries. Earlier history reflects progression from Native American lands to Spanish and Mexican ranches, farms, orchards and suburbs with closer association to Contra Costa than other regions.
