Oakland daycation-My top three favorite picks

3. Jack London Square

My daycation to this wonderful and vibrant waterfront in Oakland, CA. was exciting, as it is steeped in history. This waterfront is an estuary that leads to the San Francisco Bay. It's where Jack London spent much of his childhood on the waterfront as a sailor and oyster pirate. Those adventures there inspired his future books like SEA WOLF. While there you can see his own real life cabin on the waterfront brought in from his time in Alaska. It's definitely on my must see list.
