Sean and I, ignoring the naysayers who said it'd take us forever, took his Mazda and headed down the Coast via Highway 1 from the Bay Area to LA and then to San Diego.

Oakland--parts to avoid

Visitors to the Bay Area should feel fairly safe in most areas, but one area in Oakland that should be avoided is anywhere south of Chinatown and the Oakland Coliseum. It is a good idea not to drive through the residential area there. Stay on the freeway.

I have stayed in Oakland on several different occasions and was surprised how much there is to do there. Not a bad place to visit if you're passing through.

Oakland is less expensive to rent across the bay from the city of San Francisco, but life here isn't like what's available in the city, downtown pulls in its welcome mat come nightfall. Still it has its own uniqueness.

You may be wondering how I live in San Diego, London, Berkeley and Oakland. But I really do consider myself a resident of all these places.

Oak-town - the Bay Area city w/the "real" people

I've been living in the "City" (of San Fran) for the past 1.5 years. Only recently have I ventured to explore the East Bay. So far, I’m really enjoying the sunnier and warmer weather and getting to see the city that's still a little rough around the edges.
