Downtown Oakland has expanded in recent years to fulfill the vision of its mayor. So there are always new venues and new homes going up, bringing the city to full fruition. However, it is important to check out the history of the city that has made it what it is today.

Close by you'll find Jack London Square, where Oakland began in 1852. Today it houses many shops, restaurants, and other entertainment and nightlife. It is located along the waterfront and stretches for an expansive area. Chinatown and the business district are also in the area. The island city of Alameda is not too far and San Francisco is just a 20-minute ferry ride away. In fact, many buildings and hotels provide a great view of that main city.

For a different kind of city, check out downtown Oakland for its history, culture, and future.
