I have NO CLUE where to start.

So after all these years of hearing about Oakland and wishin' and a hopin' I'm finally going.

I'm not sure what area to situate myself in.

I've heard a lot about Jack London Square.

I'm not sure if there is a lively daytime and or nightime downtown in Oakland.

I see that there is a Chinatown.

Where is a good central area where I can do a lot of window shopping, people watching, take in a museum/festival and close to Bart?

I don't mind walking or taking public transport although I could rent a car (though I really don't want to - I hate the traffic of the Bay area).
