California is the most populous state of the United States. Located on the Pacific coast of North America, it is bordered by Oregon, Nevada, Arizona and Mexico. California is known for its pleasant climate and ethnically diverse population. The name California is most commonly believed derived from a storied paradise peopled by black Amazons and ruled by Queen Califia.

Piedmont is a city in Alameda County, California, United States. It is completely surrounded by the city of Oakland. The population was 10,952 inhabitants at the 2000 census. Piedmont is a small, primarily residential community with fine architecture, tree-lined streets, and competitive city schools. Property in Piedmont is markedly more expensive than real estate in neighboring communities.

The residents originally sought incorporation in 1907 to avoid annexation by Oakland. Two elections were held among the citizens of Piedmont in 1907, both of which narrowly upheld the decision for Piedmont to become a city. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 4.4 square kilometers. As of the census of 2000, there were 10,952 people, 3,804 households, and 3,104 families residing in the city. The population density was 2,502.1 per square kilometers.

Piedmont is definitely one of the popular tourist attractions in California worth paying a visit while touring the country. This place leaves a pleasing and unforgettable memory and justifies the proud cultural tradition of California.
