Oakland, CA Hotels, Hospitality and Fun

One thing I love about Oakland, California is the art and music scene. Oakland is known for its history and specialty in West Coast blues and jazz music, although many genres of music are celebrated there. Oakland also has great restaurants and a wonderful selection of ethnic foods. If you have time after a conference makes sure to check out the Oakland Zoo or the Oakland Aviation Museum. The city also has a great nightlife scene to explore. If you’re more of a nature lover make sure to stop by Redwood Regional Park and Joaquin Miller Park. It’s gorgeous!

Oakland, CA is also home to professional sports teams like the NBA Golden State Warriors and the Oakland Athletics.

The city has a great variety of convention centers to choose from if you need a place to book a conference such as Oakland Convention Center, Henry J.
