Oakland travel tips

1) You may need a car in Oakland

Bear in mind Oakland is a relatively big city. You may need a car to get around the city comfortably. There is no risk to overpay if you rant it at the airport; the OAK and the SFO are good rentals there. Prices start from $35 per day.

2) Visit the Gray Loft Gallery in Oakland as a sign that art is available to everyone

Visit the Gray Loft Gallery at 2889 Ford Street in Oakland. It is located in the not so popular Jingletown district. It displays rotating exhibitions of emerging, mid-career, and established artists and tries to prove that art is available to everyone.

3) See a piece of history in the legendary Heinold’s First and Last Chance Saloon

Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon in Oakland is a legendary dive bar built with the remains of a whaling ship. People say Jack London came here to write his novels. Also, you can see the floors that are not smooth (the conscience of the 1906 earthquake). And the last feature is the signed dollar bills on the walls. Sailors and soldiers signed their money and put it on the wall to return here.
