Life in Oakland

If you need to travel at odd hours, or to the outskirts of the city, you're going to want a car.

Where to play

If you get a chance to take in an Oakland Raiders NFL game, you'll witness firsthand how intense Oakland sports fans are.

If you're in the mood for Chinese food, Oakland's Chinatown is a fabulous destination. There are also some fantastic parks in and around Oakland, including the Redwood Regional Park
