About Oakland


The Happening Place


Oakland is one of the fastest growing cultural and family friendly locations in the Bay Area, with noteworthy historic and contemporary architecture. This thriving port city is the busiest in the San Francisco Bay, and a major West Coast trade center. Oakland's vibrant appeal includes a diverse population, arts and entertainment, five-star global dining, dynamic nightlife, active sports and recreation including hiking, biking and sailing - making this one of the most sought after places to live!


Writers have described Oakland’s welcoming Mediterranean climate as "one continuous summer," "an ever-blue sky," and "everlasting sun." Nature lovers can hike, bike, and take scenic walks through Redwood Regional Park, East Bay Regional Bay, Lake Merritt and Joaquin Miller Park with the entire family including their four-legged furry dog members!
Sports fans have plenty to cheer about with famous hometown teams including the Oakland Raiders, Oakland A's, and the Golden State Warriors fighting for yearly national championships. Nicknamed “Oaktown”, “The Town” and “Bump City”, Oakland is quickly becoming celebrated worldwide as the number one city in the US to live, mostly for its booming economic and culturally rich environment. Artists, musicians, creatives, enthusiasts, techies, intrapreneurs, entrepreneurs and millennials are all flocking to call this happening place home!

Residents and visitors who travel by air, train, car, or sea enjoy easy accessibility to the Oakland International Airport, BART, highway, bus, and ferry system. San Francisco the “City By The Bay” is just one hop, skip and BART ride away!
