How it all Started

In 2013 we created Emeryville on the Bay to help bring visitors to Emeryville for the America’s Cup races as part of our Destination Emeryville campaign. We worked with the City of Emeryville, our Bay friends, charter members like IKEA, Bay Street, Townhouse Bar and Grill, Marriott, P.F. Chang’s and other great businesses to bring visitors to Emeryville and positioned Emeryville as a travel destination.

Our efforts were so successful, we expanded to include twelve more cities around the Bay – all with marinas and hidden gems we share with you.
