Oakland, also known as Oak Town, O-town, and Bright Side of the Bay, is the eighth-largest city in the state of California. The first stop for the visitor to Oakland is Jack London Square, named after its former resident and famous author. You can reach the Square by Amtrak train or by San Francisco Bay Ferry. The Square is famous for attractions like the relocated cabin that Jack London lived in while he was in the Klondike, the Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon bar, and the Farmers’ Market.

The Farmers’ Market happens every Sunday from 9 am to 2pm, all the year around. The shopper can find fresh fruits and vegetables of every kind, fresh breads and pastries, and the chance to look in upon cookery demonstrations. Diners looking to eat can go to the Haven Oakland on Webster Street, for fine cuisine. The Bocanova is also on Webster Street and serves a wide range of cuisine, including dishes from South America.

If you wish to rent a kayak or canoe, go to California Canoe & Kayak and choose from a range of canoeing equipment and accessories. Another Oakland attraction is the Tribune Tower on 13th Street, a 21-story building that is the home of the Oakland Tribune newspaper. The Tower is distinctive both by day and night with its bronze roof, large clock faces and illuminated banner declaring ‘TRIBUNE’.

Oakland Chinatown is a significant part of life in this multicultural city. There, visitors can find a wide range of stores that sell everything from live seafood to chopsticks and porcelain. Diners looking for Chinese dishes can go to the four-star Shan Dong Restaurant on 10th Street. The Vien Huong Restaurant on Franklin Street serves Vietnamese dishes. These are just a few of the attractions available to the Oakland visitor.
