Plan Your Trip to Oakland: Best of Oakland Tourism

A city of urban villages buzzing on Bay Area creativity
Oakland is San Francisco’s sunnier neighbor, a diverse metropolis bursting with creativity and local pride. Art is everywhere here, from museums and galleries to 1,000+ murals that adorn the streets. The buzzy food scene supports both big-name chefs and small-batch makers. And in Oakland, you’re never far from nature—from the Bay waterfront to the string of regional parks that crown its eastern hills. Oakland International Airport (OAK) connects Oakland to the world; and it’s a short car trip, ferry ride, or BART commute to San Francisco.
