This San Francisco Bay area destination is a vibrant city with a thriving nightlife and culinary scene. Though this city was founded in 1852, the area along the shoreline was inhabited by Native Americans for over 5000 years. Oakland, California was also centrally placed during the Gold Rush. Visitors to the area enjoy visiting the waterfront and downtown, often overlooking the other neighborhoods that have as much to offer in architecture, arts, restaurants, and shops. There is Jack London Square, Chinatown, Lake Merritt, Piedmont Avenue, Rockridge, and Montclair Village. Each area is distinctive and has historical and cultural merit in its own right and should not be overlooked during a visit to the Oakland region. For the culinary tourist, there is Market Hall, a European style market, that has food demonstrations such as their upcoming "2000 Pounds of Cheese" during which visitors can see the largest wheel of Spanish cheese (and maybe even get a taste). For romance, taking a gondola ride on Lake Merritt will create the mood and ambiance for that perfect evening. For families, the Chabot Space and Science Center and Children's Fairyland will provide informative and hands on fun! This attraction is part of Lakeside Park which is one of the largest salt water lakes in the country. There is something for everyone in Oakland, California!
