About Downtown Oakland

Oakland, California, is a port city in the Bay Area of California, and was rated as having the best weather in the country by Rand McNally. Oakland used to be covered is oak trees, hence the name, and many of the trees were logged to build the famous city of San Francisco. The fertile soil under those trees helped the area to become a very productive agricultural region. In the late 1860's, Oakland was chosen as the site of the western terminal for the Transcontinental Railroad. After the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, many people relocated to Oakland, which gave a huge boost to the cities housing and infrastructure. Due to it's busy port, shipyards, and automobile industry, Oakland continued to grow until the late 1990s. The city is a transportation hub for the United States, and the shipping port is the fifth busiest. Despite the humble beginnings of Oakland, it quickly grew to be a multicultural hub.

With over 150 languages being spoken, Oakland is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the country, and is no stranger to radical culture, as it is home to the beginning of both the Black Panther Party and the Hell's Angels. Despite it being known for radical movements, it is also known for being a second home to novelists Amy Tan, Maya Angelou, and Jack London. It has also been a hub for hip-hop culture and artists, such as MC Hammer and Tupac Shakur. The Oakland hills are known for their gorgeous homes and beautiful architecture, and some real gems can be found tucked away in the greenery. Oakland has some amazing sights to see if you simply look for them, and you can spend quite a few fun days in this beautiful and historic port city.
