FoodThe culinary scene in Oakland has been exploding over the last decade. Now it is home to some truly amazing restaurants as well as one of California's best up and coming breweries. Whether its dumplings in China Town or Italian near Lake Merrit, there is a little something for everyone.
Historic & Fun Spots to ExploreSince Oakland has a long history connected to the water, many of its most historic spots now sit in the popular Jack London Square. My personal favorite is Heinolds First and Last Chance Saloon, which was where a young Jack London got inspired for some of his most popular stories.
Chapel of the Chimes
Cathedral of Christ the Light
Outdoor ActivitiesOnly a stone's throw from downtown Oakland, there are ample outdoor activities for you to partake in. My favorites are the groves of redwoods in the regional park and kayaking near the estuary.
