Located only a few miles from the San Francisco border, Oakland is one of the most famous sister-cities in California. However close to San Francisco it may be in miles, Oakland is far from the eccentricity of its neighbouring bay city. Oakland is one of the busiest industrial ports on the West Coast and while its working-class personality remains the heartbeat of the city, “Oak-town” welcomes a slew of visitors every year who enjoy taking part in the simpler Californian lifestyle.

Book flights to Oakland during sports season and catch the MLB’s Oakland Athletics or the NFL’s Oakland Raiders in action at the Oakland Coliseum. Outdoorsy travellers will enjoy a sailboat ride along Lake Merritt or a stroll through one of the many outdoor festivals that Oakland puts on every summer. Don’t dismiss Oakland as second-rate city just because it’s neighbouring San Francisco is a mecca for entertainment – Oakland has some of the best shows, theatre, and museums California has to offer.
