When you need to escape the city for a weekend, head to Alameda. This often overlooked town is a welcoming enclave of artisan tasting rooms, vintage treasures, and hidden history. Life moves slower here, and that suits Alameda’s 80,000 residents just fine (And don’t worry, we have you covered with Alameda cannabis delivery services).

Despite being so close to San Francisco and Oakland, Alameda retains a small-town feel. Vibrant Victorian houses dot the streets, and on a sunny day, you’ll meet friendly local families kicking back on the beach.

Alameda’s low-key vibe, delicious food, and beautiful scenery make it a true 420-friendly destination. Here’s how we’d spend a weekend getting buzzed in Alameda.

Explore Alameda’s Artisan Food and Drink Scene

Alameda is heaven for lovers of craft brews and global food. With our Alameda cannabis delivery options serving the area, the munchies never hit at a better time.

Go Global With Alameda’s Food Trucks

Every Saturday, the Off the Grid food truck market takes over the South Shore Centre. Nepalese, Middle Eastern, and Filipino food trucks sit side-by-side with classic American comfort food.

Alameda’s restaurant offerings are no less diverse. Local favorites include Burma Superstar, Speisekammer’s German menu, and Domenico’s Italian Deli. 

Taste Your Way Through Spirits Alley

Any good meal should be paired with the right drink. And there’s no shortage of artisan breweries, wineries, and distilleries in Alameda. Rock Wall Wines offers incredible views of the city from its unique location in an old Naval hangar.

Meanwhile, St George Spirits produce a phenomenal roster of spirits, from dry rye gin to pear brandy. Stroll further down Monarch Street (dubbed “Spirits Alley”) to taste creations from Faction Brewing, Hangar 1 Vodka, and Building 43 Winery.

Our Perfect Pairings: Kiva’s Churro Milk Chocolate

Cannabis can only enhance Alameda’s culinary delights. Save the high for an after-dinner treat, or sneak a hit between courses with Kiva’s Churro Milk Chocolate

The cinnamon-dusted chocolate really does taste like churros and delivers a balanced high. Made with sustainable cacao and full-spectrum terpenes, Kiva’s chocolate earns its place on a foodie day trip.

Uncover Vintage Treasures

The Alameda Point Antique and Collectibles Fair is a must-see staple of the Alameda calendar. It’s the biggest antique market in Northern California, set against incredible views of SF over the bay.

On the first Sunday of every month, the fair draws vendors and buyers from miles around. With over 800 stalls to choose from, you’ll find one-of-a-kind decor, clothes, jewellery, collectibles, books … and some weird stuff too.

Our Perfect Pairing: Kiva’s Camino Gummies

There’s a lot to take in at Alameda Point, so opt for an energizing sativa to make the most of the experience. Kiva’s Camino Watermelon Spritz gummies are a great choice—buzzy and uplifting. You’ll be entertained for hours while you uncover unexpected treasures in hidden corners of the market.

Play Your Way Through Alameda’s Retro Arcades

Alameda is steeped in history, from the first Victorian mansions to the 1940s naval museums. But hands down the most fun you can have is a trip through gaming history.

Start at the Pacific Pinball Museum, which is home to more than 90 playable antique machines. Experts and punters alike will get a kick trying their luck against the vintage machines.

Next, head over to High Scores Arcade for some 80s nostalgia. For just $10 for an hour of unlimited play, you can try your hand at 45 different games, including Tron, Pacman, Mortal Kombat, and Space Invaders.

Our Perfect Pairing: Jetty Extracts via Alameda Cannabis Delivery

A great day at the arcade needs high energy and focus. We love Jetty Extracts’ strain-specific CCELL Cartridges when we’re looking for a specific effect. 

Their Pineapple Express cartridge packs the classic sativa into an easy-to-use, top-quality vape cart. You’ll feel creative, focused, and energetic—perfect for levelling up.

Hit The Beach to Chill and Grill

After all that activity, it’s time to wind down. Alameda is blessed with a Mediterranean climate, just right for lounging in the sun. Crown Memorial State Beach is a 2.5 mile-long beachfront right in the heart of town.

You can fish, boat, and swim all year round, and the water is mercifully warmer than other Northern California beaches. So bring a BBQ and relax. Or get up close with nature at the Elsie Roemer Bird Sanctuary, where you’ll see resident pelicans, herons, and egrets.

Our Perfect Pairing: Absolute Xtracts Hi-Fi Hops Tuner 1:1

Take a break from the beer, and pair your BBQ with a cannabis drink instead. Absolute Xtracts Hi-Fi Hops Tuner 1:1 looks and feels like your favorite craft IPA. But instead of alcohol, it contains 5mg of THC and 5mg of CBD and no calories. 

The result is a balanced high that won’t wipe you out for the day. Instead, you’ll feel gently buzzed while you laze around in the sunshine with your friends.

Alameda Cannabis Delivery Inspires Adventure 

Alameda’s slow pace of life and beachfront location are perfectly suited to cannabis-friendly tourism. So after a lazy weekend strolling the streets, you’re sure to return to the city feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. 

Make sure to place an order through our Alameda cannabis delivery service, to hands on your favorite cannabis products before you set off. You can shop for vapes, gummies, drinks, and more right here at Mountain Remedy, and we’ll deliver right across the Bay Area.
