As with any popular community - and who wouldn't want to live on a pretty bay not far from major communities like Vallejo - you'll need to allow some time to find the place you want to live. Walk and drive the streets, read the local Pittsburg area newspaper, and look for properties online. You'll be sure to find rental houses, a one-bedroom apartment or a duplex for rent here. Bay Point home rentals of all types abound. Come equipped with your credit report and identification to win the affection of your future landlord.
Suburban Bay Point is a neighborhood in itself, with commuters who primarily take their own vehicles to work - and commute about 15 to 30 minutes each way. A solid mix of owners and renters in all walks of life live here, in properties that range from medium to small single-family homes and small apartment complexes. While some homes are fairly historic and date back to 1940, most were built between 1970 and 1999. Small cafes and shops dot the area, including many that are within walking distance of homes and apartments.
The bay is obviously a prominent feature of this town from its name to its geography. Suisun Bay was named for a Native American tribe that lived in the region. It's a fairly shallow estuary that rests at the spot where the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers form the entrance way to the Sacramento and San Joaquin River delta. There's a large tidal marsh nearby: Suisun Marsh, the largest in California. Bird lovers flock along with their feathered friends to watch migratory fowl. Interesting flora and fauna exist here for nature lovers to explore.
