About El Cerrito
El Cerrito is a city in Contra Costa County, and a part of the San Francisco Bay Area. It is bordered by Albany and Kensington to the south. It is located just along the Interstate 80, and the nearby Interstate 580. El Cerrito is an enchanting city with an incredible school district, full of beautiful homes and a top choice for many families living in the East Bay.
El Cerrito also has its own BART station, providing easy public transportation throughout the rest of the greater Bay Area. Farmers markets are held every Sunday, and there are recreational parks & dog parks scattered throughout. El Cerrito is bursting with its own unique charm. It possesses its own little plaza and a movie theatre -- The Cerrito Theatre, a historic theatre that hosts a mixture of first-run films, old classics, B Movies, film festivals, and more.
Perfectly situated near larger East Bay Cities, but with a slightly more suburban feel, El Cerrito gives you the option of stepping into the hustle and bustle of the city life while still being able to return to your very own peaceful & family-friendly roost.
