Review of Old Oakland

Reviewed 21 June 2017

This is a small section of Oakland, easy to get to (12th street BART). There is the Swan market - a collection of walk-up restaurants and a butcher and fishmonger - as well as some small boutique shops within lovely architecture. From here you can easily walk to other areas, like Uptown or Jack London Square, or the Lake Merritt area.

Some nice historic preservation, right downtown. Some very good restaurants, bars, and a nice market. Good outdoor farmers market at least one day per week.

A relative recently moved to Oakland from San Francisco and took us on a walking tour of Old Oakland. We were very surprised by what we saw. The area around 8th and Broadway is packed with restaurants and interesting shops. Nearby Chinatown is interesting as well. This doesn't compare to San Francisco, but Oakland has come a long way from what I remember and worth a look.

this section of town is clearly being renovated into multi use areas combining retail and restaurants with cozy living spaces. Interesting area.

This is a beautifully restored area of Oakland, not far from Jack London Square and the Civic Center. It is also fairly close to Lake Merritt and the Oakland Museum of California.
