Few visitors to Oakland leave without seeing the historic, retail and office venues that make up Jack London Square. Besides shopping and dining, you can also see a recreated cabin of noted author, Jack London, who resided in the Klondike.

Lake Merritt | 6.9 miles
What do the numbers 126 and 3400 mean to you? That’s the number of lampposts and bulbs you can see in the necklace of lights that encircle Lake Merritt. Lake Merritt became the first official wildlife refuge in the United States in 1870. Today, visitors can enjoy a ride in a gondola, fresh produce at one of its farmers’ markets, or simply view the largest urban (3.4 miles around) fresh water-sea lake.
