Oakland is not necessarily a top American destination, but it has its own special appeal to those who are not bound by cliches. It's not San Francisco, but it's scenic, historic and cultural. Add to your Oakland guide its proudest attraction, the USS Potomac; then continue with sailing on Lake Merritt and the fantastic Oakland Museum. After that, explore Oakland at your own pace, and discover on your own why it is considered one of America's most diverse cities.
