Oakland Apartments For Rent

Oakland, California is a place that cares! Living in an Oakland apartment will enhance your desire to get involved. Perhaps it is all of the sunshine – Oakland is ranked number one in climate among US cities, enjoying 300 sunny days per year. Whatever it is, the city of Oakland works hard to minimize homelessness, hunger, and to deliver hot plates to seniors.  If you want to witness such good acts and always be around genuine people that care, rent an apartment in Oakland today!

Oakland has gained national recognition as a major travel destination. Who wants to stay away from all of those beautiful palm trees? Oakland was named the top North American city to visit, highlighting its growing number of sophisticated restaurants and bars, top music venues, and increasing nightlife appeal. You say you need a change? Oakland is the best place to find it!

Things to Do in Oakland:

Don’t underestimate Oakland – this is a city filled with things to do! Everything from star-gazing to paddle boarding to hikes through the redwood forests are available. You can get up close and personal with more than 450 species at the Oakland Zoo. That’s not all. Bring out your inner science geek at Chabot Space and Science Center! Even learn why Walt Disney was inspired to create Disneyland after a visit to Children’s Fairyland. Sure, it’s not what you expected. It’s Oakland!

What is there not to do in Oakland is the question! Though it is somewhat overshadowed by neighboring giant San Francisco, people enjoy this ‘mecca of the West’ feel. Movers and shakers are constantly pushing the boundaries, leading the way for innovation and creativity. The best part about it is that there is no lack of creative expression!

Feel like smooching? Grab your sweetheart’s face and pucker up! Oakland has several designated “kissing” spots, such as beside the giant peace sign that overlooks Lake Merritt at the Oakland Museum of California, or on the “Kiss Cam” at the Oracle Arena. Or just sitting on the concrete steps next to the Jack London Statue on Jack London Square would be just enough to suffice a smooch on the cheek!

It’s party time! Oakland is filled with pizazz and sparkly fun! Heinold’s First & Last is a great starting point for a local bar crawl. It’s oozing with local flavor and is located right on the Bay. Continue the journey on to Smitty’s Cocktails, known for its cheap drinks, or Dorsey’s Locker, possibly the best place to munch on some down-home pub grub. For those who love beer and the local bar scene, Barclay’s has about thirty on tap to choose from.

What to Consider When Moving to Oakland:

And of course there’s ice cream! Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream Holdings, Inc. was founded in 1928 by William Dreyer and Joseph Edy in Oakland! That is a major consideration when trying to determine which Oakland apartment fits you best.
