Hayward is a larger medium-sized coastal city (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of California. With a population of 154,612 people and 40 constituent neighborhoods, Hayward is the 37th largest community in California.
Housing costs in Hayward are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in California.

One of the nice things about Hayward is that it is nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Because of this, visitors and locals will often go to these areas to take in the scenery or to enjoy waterfront activities.
One downside of living in Hayward, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 30.93 minutes every day commuting to work. However, local public transit is widely used. For those who would prefer to avoid driving entirely and leave their car at home, it may be an option to use the transit instead.
Although the majority of commuting trips in the city are by private automobile, Hayward is somewhat unusual for a city of its size for having a substantial number of people who use public transportation. For a lot of people, the subway helps to get to and from their jobs every morning, which benefits everyone in the Hayward area by reducing both traffic and air pollution.
