Food and Shopping scene

Great Farmer's Market every Saturday. Great spot to check out is Oaktown Spice Shop. Walk or rent bikes by the hour and hit the trails around the lake. Fabulous restaurants on both Lakeshore and Grand Avenues. Family favorite activity is visiting Fairy Land. Or, enjoy the organ player before a movie at the historic Grand Lake Theatre. Favorite Spots in this area: Almond & Oak Sister Restaurant Cana Shakewell Arizmendi

Perfect spot for a sit down brunch at Grand Lake Kitchen or Bombera. Grab quick coffee and pastries from La Farine. Fruitvale Avenue and MacArthur Blvd. has it all. Host a family friendly Octoberfest.

If hipsters and artisanal ice-cream is your thing, Temescal Neighborhood is the spot for you. I love stopping by Preserved Goods, Umani Mart for amazing Sake selection, and Oakland Yards for wine. By far one of the best food scenes. Favorite spots in this neighborhood: La Calaca Loca Bakesale Betty Burma Super Star Cholita Linda Aunt Mary's Cafe Local Butcher Shop

Great spot to exercise all while enjoying incredible views of the East Bay and San Francisco. Treasure Island has a prenominal weekend flea market and winery with a fantastic view of the bay.

Highly recommend the ferry ride from Jack London Marina to Ferry Building in San Francisco. Both locations offer amazing Farmer's Markets and dining scene. Enjoy bowling at Plank or just hanging out. Great location to eat outdoors, near water with great views of the Bay.

Night Life

First Fridays of every month is a street fair on Telegraph Avenue between W. Grand and 27th. All of the art galleries stay open, amazing food trucks, street vendors, and music. If going with a family, go early! Best night life in Oakland for dancing and bars is near the Fox Theatre. During the summertime, downtown host both Pride Parade and Black Joy Parade.

Legalized Marijuana

Marijuana is legal in California and there are numerous dispensaries and delivery services available. If you plan on attending any one of the fabulous street fairs in the Bay Area, go prepared to be exposed to marijuana in it's many forms. If home delivery is of interest and you are at least 21 years old, check out tryeuphorium.com
