What You Told Us: Out-of-Towner Advice

In our most recent Survey Monkey poll, we asked you: “When you have guests come in from out of town, where do you tell them to go in Oakland?”

Here is some of what you told us:

“Mountain View Cemetery"

“I tell them to stay at the Waterfront. I tell them to go to Lake Merritt, the East Bay Regional Parks, the Saturday morning tour at the Paramount Theater, and so many amazing food options, among others.”

“Redwood Regional Park, Jack London Square, Oakland Museum.”

“Downtown Marriott. But I am very curious about the Beulah Home of Peace on the east side of Mills College. Seems like it is a bed-and-breakfast in a Christian facility. I might check this out for out-of-town folks who are Christians as it is not far from our crowded house in upper Laurel.”

“I tell them of all the off-beat places. Mandela Parkway/Peralta graffiti art. The Fat Lady at Jack London Square, Lake Merritt and the Sacred Well. Hiking in Joaquin Miller Park; the Montclair Pitch & Putt for a quiet, inexpensive meal and drink.”

“Lake Merritt area Redwoods Parks (walking in). Drive along Skyline for view of Oakland, SF, and Bay, Oakland Museum. Friday nights, Grand Lake and/or Paramount Theater. Jack London area. Bike paths in Alameda. Fairyland (if with small children). Restaurants: variety of food choices. Amazing Oakland Symphony, Jazz Mafia, if playing in Oakland.”

“Downtown Courtyard.”

“Chinatown, Redwood Regional and Joaquin Miller Parks, Chabot Space and Science Center Friday and Saturday night observation desk viewings, Marcom Rose Garden, Lake Merritt bird sanctuary and gardens, Paramount Theater, Everett and Jones, Ruby Room, Scott’s, First Fridays.”

“Lake Merritt Farmers Market.”
