Oakland, headquarters to Kaiser, Safeway, Clorox is 8 miles east of San Francisco and commonly referred to as the East Bay. There's a lot of history in this upbeat and revitalized community. To start there has always existed a sort of civic rivalry between the two Bay cities. One thing is for certain, Oakland has that "other Bay city" beat hands down when it comes to weather. It doesn't have to deal with the vast amounts of fog its neighbor contends with. While San Francisco rests under the mist Oakland is basking in pure California sunshine. Besides beautiful rolling hills and blue lakes, this is a sports town like no other.
