"Well Named Neighborhood"

Ocean View is the small neighborhood at the far northern end of American Canyon. It is made up of newer contemporary style homes. They date from the mid-90s and sell for around $250K. Ocean View is definitely aptly named--you do get some views of the water from the elevated areas of this neighborhood.

Schools here as throughout American Canyon are above average and crime is below average.

This is a pretty great neighborhood actually, offering you one of the best values in American Canyon. The only problem could be the terrible commute if you do not work in the area. Your commute from here is about an hour to Oakland during Rush Hour traffic.
  • Good Views
