Oakland Links Directory and Travel Resources

(Oakland, California - CA, USA)

The small city of Oakland cannot help but be overshadowed by the presence of neighboring San Francisco, a giant world-famous city less than half an hour's drive away. However, this is by no means a small city and it comes with many appealing qualities, including a prominent central lake, a busy port and an appealing heritage worth investigating.

Those wishing to get to know Oakland a little better should consider taking a self-guided tour, or at least checking out the charming architecture making up Victorian Row, within the Old Town area. The Oakland Museum of California is also on hand to provide all kinds of local and state history, while Jack London Square makes the very most of its waterfront setting, boasting eateries and shops aplenty.
