No trip to the Bay Area is complete without time spent in San Francisco’s sister-city to the east, Oakland. From the vital art scene to the globally-inspired food, there’s a reason all your SF-based friends are suddenly relocating to the East Bay. Storied redwoods, city-wide block parties, waterfront wineries, and mindblowing Oakland restaurants featuring all regions and ethnicities (special shout out to all the great Ethoiopian restaurants in Oakland) are just some of the best things to do in Oakland, California.
