Oakland Travel Guide

One of the Bay Area’s three large cities, Oakland is a fascinating blend of cultures, history, and off the beaten track adventures. Most visitors to the Bay Area prefer San Francisco and Oakland has long-suffered with the reputation as the high-crime city just across the bridge. That reputation is slowly shifting towards a reputation as a cool alternative to stuffy and pricey San Francisco.

Things to Do in Oakland

Check out Angel Island for excellent hiking and camping out on the Bay. Jack London Square (the famous author was an Oakland native) offers shopping along the waterfront. Lake Merritt is another central area bustling with activity and packed with great restaurant options. Hikes up in the Oakland Hills are also highly recommended.

Best Places to Stay in Oakland

The best places to stay are the Lake Merritt neighborhood for easy access to downtown and the rest of the city, Temescal for cool shops and food and the Oakland Hills for a more relaxed vibe and incredible views of the Bay.

Best Time to Visit Oakland

The best time to visit Oakland is in the late spring, summer and fall when the temperatures hover in the low 70’s and rain is a non-factor.
