Oakland, and the greater San Francisco Bay Area, is one of the hottest places in the Golden state. It melds a rich heritage, including Native Americans who settled the region thousands of years ago, to the Spanish settlers in the late 1700s and the Asians, African Americans, and Northern Europeans who followed the 1849 Gold Rush to the West Coast.

Today, over 400,000 people call Oakland home. Despite its big city size, Oakland maintains a landscape as diverse as its people. While you roam the city, you'll find hillside neighborhoods, a busy waterfront, and two lakes and nearly 20 miles of shoreline along the San Francisco Bay. And getting outside to enjoy all of this is easy with temperatures in the 50s and 60s in the winter and 80s throughout summer.

Sports enthusiasts rejoice! Two NFL teams can call the Bay Area home, so cheer on the Oakland Raiders or the San Francisco 49er's throughout the fall. Spend hockey season with the San Jose Sharks, and as spring rolls around, hit the stadiums of the Oakland Athletics and of course, the San Francisco Giants - 2014 National League Champions.
