Though Oakland is often overshadowed by its cross-bay neighbour, San Francisco, there is plenty to see and do in ‘Oaktown’. The city is served by an international airport and is connected to the other urban centres of San Francisco Bay via a series of highways and bridges.
Oakland is only a short distance from some truly magnificent natural attractions, including coastal redwood pockets and stunning upland sites. Driving around Oakland with a recreational vehicle hire is an excellent way to see the sights, both in and out of the city. The roads are well maintained, especially those leading to and from Oakland’s busy international airport.
