Hayward, CA Apartments for Rent

Situated along the San Francisco Bay in one of California’s favorite areas, Hayward is the “Heart of the Bay.” This terrific city is directly across the bay from San Mateo and is about 25 miles southeast of San Francisco. Home to nearly 150,000, this is one of the busiest cities in the East Bay area. If you want to be one of those residents, you’ll discover a variety of apartments for rent in Hayward.

In the mid-1800s, Hayward was part of Rancho San Lorenzo, a 26,722-acre Mexican land grant given to Guillermo Castro. In order to clear some debts, Castro sold off parcels of land. Unfortunately, Castro chose to build his own house directly over the Hayward Fault – and it was nearly destroyed by the 1868 Hayward earthquake.  (The last earthquake along the fault line.)

The Gold Rush captured the attention of William Hayward in 1851. He squatted on Castro’s land, prompting Castro to sell 40 acres of land to Hayward. Hayward opened a general store, a post office, and a stagecoach stop. Later, he built Hayward’s Hotel and since it was so well-known as the best hotel in the area, it became known as “Hayward’s Place.” The land Hayward originally owned is now Downtown Hayward. In 1860, due to a clerical error, the post office designated Hayward as “Haywood.” It finally became the city of Hayward in 1928.

Today, Hayward is a very popular college town – California State University, East Bay is located here. Cal State East Bay is a top-tier institution, offering 136 undergraduate and 60 graduate programs. Cal State East Bay is frequently named the “Best in the West” by Princeton Review. Cal State East Bay enrolls about 13,000 students. The university’s Solar Energy Project is well-known and respected – the university has won several awards and is one of California’s largest photovoltaic systems.

Perhaps you are moving to an apartment in Hayward for Cal State East Bay – or perhaps you are moving to the bay area for another reason. No matter what brings you here, the fantastic downtown will convince you to stay! Downtown Hayward is a collection of fantastic murals, shops, and restaurants. Hayward is also beautiful – it has been a Tree City USA since 1986. Once you’ve moved to your Hayward apartment, be sure to check out Buffalo Bill’s Brewery – one of the first brewpubs to open in California. Downtown is also home to the Hayward Area Historical Society Museum, an art gallery, and a movie theater.

The Japanese Gardens should be on your to-do list after moving to Hayward – although it is just 3.5 acres, it is stunning. This is the oldest Japanese garden in the state, created in 1980. With its authentic designs and beautiful walkways, it is a popular location for weddings. Hayward Regional Shoreline covers 1,713 acres along the bay. It features tidal wetlands, the Cogswell Marsh, and part of Oro Loma Marsh. The San Francisco Bay Trail winds through the park and connects it with San Lorenzo Creek. The trail extends about 340 miles and is a terrific biking, walking, and jogging path.
