Proud and gritty Oakland, long overshadowed by its glamorous neighbor San Francisco, is a world-class city with plentiful assets long cherished by its old-timers and more recently discovered by hipsters. We have hiking trails, regional parks, and Children’s Fairyland, a thriving dining scene, the occasional sports championship, a vibrant arts scene, leadership in the marijuana industry, and much more. It is one of the most diverse and integrated cities anywhere, rich in cultures and history. Let’s talk about it all, the challenges and changes, secrets and discoveries.
