Oakland’s lovely hillside neighborhoods and lively shopping districts draw residents to the East Bay’s largest city - an exciting, vibrant, urban community. In the Sequoyah-Chabot neighborhood, many homeowners enjoy large lots that border the East Bay Regional Park and the Lake Chabot Golf Course. Montclair’s homes are situated on forested lots that offer a quiet retreat from the city. Temescal is an up-and-coming neighborhood along bustling Telegraph Avenue, with the feel of an urban village. In Jack London Square near the waterfront, old warehouses and former factories have been converted to loft living. Lakeshore-Upper Grand, with its mix of shopping, restaurants, antique stores, and a farmers market, is one of Oakland’s most eclectic neighborhoods. For those who live in Claremont, the Elmwood Shopping District offers a variety of old-fashioned shops and mixture of merchants. It’s easy to enjoy a wide variety of year-round outdoor activities in Oakland. Lake Merritt, located in the heart of the city, offers a 3.4-mile walking path, picnicking, sailing, and kayaking. Redwood and Joaquin Regional Parks encompass stately forests of 150-foot coast redwoods and provide miles of hiking, jogging, and horseback-riding trails.
