The houses along the street are picturesque and have interesting architecture. The manmade lagoons are also unique. Eastern part of Otis Drive is the Alameda town center, the shopping center of Alameda. There is a Trader Joe's there. Woohoo. There is also a borders, walgreens, and a plethora of good restaurants.
