No needless fluff, no boring anthropological lessons! Just everything we love!

We don`t stuff our travel content with working hours, credit-cards accepted, nearby transportation and user-reviews as it tends to bulk up the writing and are subject to change since the time of publishing. Once you decide the places you want to visit, these infos can easily be found at your hotel concierge, on-line or on Google Maps.

No user-review based content!

Similarly, our philosophy has been that user-reviewed travel sites are subjective, as they tend to top-rank places that manage their reputation on those sites. So little corner bakeries, unique shops by local artisans, secluded beaches and hidden bars don't show up in those sites as visibly as places that have an on-line marketer or social media specialist. Similarly, we believe the opinion of one well-informed local expert should outweigh the opinion of hundreds of first-time visitors to Oakland. First-time visitors tend to flock to famous tourist attractions, creating a vicious circle, accentuating just the popular places. Our local experts know the entire city, and know what deserves a visit, whether a famous attraction or a quaint corner.

'Oakland Top 100 Spots' is the first travel guide to Oakland you ought to read.

It quickly helps you define your short-list of places you want to visit, so you don`t have to spend hours reading hundreds of pages of dense writing. All for less than the price of a sandwich.

  • Used Book in Good Condition
Product Description:
The landmark Oakland Tribune clock tower has been telling the time in neon in downtown Oakland since it was built in 1923, but the paper itself first appeared on city streets as early as 1874. For over a half century, the paper was owned and published by the influential and civic-minded Knowland family, who spearheaded efforts to modernize the Port of Oakland, construct the San Francisco Oakland Bay Bridge, and establish a regional park system for Alameda and Contra Costa Counties. Following the Loma Prieta earthquake, the damaged clock tower on Thirteenth Street where Harry Houdini once hung by his heels above gawking crowds on Broadway was sadly vacant, but today it is once again busy with the buzz and bustle of the newsroom.
