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.
Locals' Pick Olive oils and vinegars
Olive oils and vinegarsStay.com Editors' Note
For good olive oils, there is no better destination in Berkeley than Amphora Nueva. The company produces most of the extra virgin olive oils available in store. They also offer olive oils infused with herbs and spices, as well as specialty products, like truffle salt, and fig balsamic jam.
Amphora Nueva’s gourmet vinegar bar is exceptional, featuring several varieties of aged balsamic vinegar on tap. You can taste before you buy. They also hold olive oil classes, tastings, and other events. Check out their website and social media channels for news and interesting recipes.
