Living in Oakland

Oakland is fast becoming one of the hippest places to live in the country. It offers something for everyone from gourmet restaurants, Art Deco concert halls and fine art museums to lip-smacking barbecue joints, hipster clubs, interactive arts venues, three major sports teams and redwood forests. And Walkscore Inc. rated Oakland one of the 10 most walkable cities in the country.

From the shore of the bay to the top of its hills, Oakland offers a range of wonderfully diverse neighborhoods for singles and families who call the area home.
