It was busier, from what I can recall. It us a nice place to lounge and have a meal. It isn't Oakland's prime destination spot, but it is a stop. There is a free shuttle bus that'll carry along broadway and down to the square.

Nothing to do there. Most stores are closed or don't exist. No where to park free. I liked the weather. I disliked the stores

This is an old boardwalk along the bay that has docks and many restaurants to choose from. It felt safe given that you are in downtown oakland and the area was kept up pretty nice. We visited at night at didn't get any of the views.

Nice area of restaurants and some shops. Most restaurants in this vicinity require reservations, especially on a weekend or Friday night, however the foods are good at the ones I've been to. A wonderful Christmas tree is in the center of Jack London Square at Christmas time & is beautiful. They also have an outdoor market on some weekends that are fun to attend. Gotta love the atmosphere of being near the water too!
