Welcome to Oakland

Oakland is a large port city lying just east across the Bay from San Francisco. Before Oakland’s 1854 incorporation as a city, the surrounding hills provided much of the oak and redwood used to build San Francisco. Oakland still features two redwood parks with some of the oldest trees in the Bay Area. A large urban lake, restored Victorian and Art Deco architecture, booming gallery and street art scenes, a food culture rivaling that of San Francisco, an urban wine trail, and easy access to the coast and wine country make Oakland a very engaging city. From the USS Hornet Aircraft Carrier Museum on Alameda Island to one of America’s oldest Chinatowns, Oakland provides an incredibly rich visitor experience.
