Whether you have lived in Oakland or neaby Piedmont, there is a very good chance that you have not discovered all that Oakland has to offer you, and any family and friends that may be in town. There is a wealth of things to do, no matter what your age.
The website VISIT OAKLAND is a source of amazing information about the city. The site is devoted to subjects like "Things to Do", "Places to Stay", "Where to Meet". From there, you can decide which direction you want to travel. As an example, it offers "101 Things To Do--Building Your Own Oakland Bucket List". This is where the site really shines, because it highlights things you might not even know existed. How about a learning to fly on a trapeeze at a circus school, or horseback riding in the Oakland hills, or a Saturday night Wurlitzer organ concert at the historic Grand Lake Theater? You already might know about the Oakland Museum of California, The Chabot Space and Science Center, The Oakland Zoo, The Oakland East Bay Symphony, Jack London Square, and more, but how about discovering a "7 Day Guide to Oakland Nightlife", or a list of special independent shops and artists, and what they have to offer?
With the holiday season coming, each of these venues will be even more delightful. So, whether you are a long time resident, or a visitor from another town, these should be some pleasant activities to enjoy.
