Oak trees and gorgeous Bay views

Across the bridge from San Francisco, Oakland has a enough for a few pleasant days. The city is home to the USS Potomac, alongside the city’s museum, art galleries, and parks. Shopping is fun in Oakland too, especially if you have a passion for hats - there is no men’s hat store quite like The Hat Guys. For gifts, souvenirs, good dining, and other shopping opportunities, follow College Avenue - it’s a local favorite.

Every East Bay cheese enthusiast knows that when you say “cheese, ” we say “board.” If you want to torture yourself with more selection of cheeses than your heart could physically tolerate, look no further. And if you’re still hungry after sampling so much cheese, you can treat yourself to one of the best slices of pizza in the bay while listening to the live jazz band outside.
