Oakland

Welcome to

Oakland

Located on the inner part of the bar area, right across the bridge from San Francisco, Oakland is eclectic and diverse. Home of the A’s, baseball is rooted in Oakland! Downtown has a mix of Victorian and Art Deco buildings, sitting side by side with modern city buildings.

Lake Merritt is at the center of the city with a laid back vibe and great walking and jogging paths. Homes are more affordable and are a mix of condos and family homes from the early 20th century. Superb transport links take you throughout the rest of the bay area and beyond.
