Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area offer the perfect escape, no matter what you enjoy doing in your free time. As you land you'll get your first glimpse of the spectacular views over Oakland International Airport, which sits right on the shores of San Francisco Bay.

What better way to get away from the grind than to head outdoors for a hike? Flying into Oakland offers easy access to some of the most amazing hikes in Northern California. Sibley Volcanic Regional Preserve features Round Top, a 1,763-foot peak you can hike at your own pace. Along the way you'll find all kinds of native wildflowers -- but don't worry, the volcano hasn't been active for 10 million years. Joaquin Miller Park is east of the city and offers gorgeous trails amid giant California redwoods, a must-see while you're in the San Francisco Bay Area.

For exercise, fun, and edification within the city limits, find a food tour or plot your own adventure to explore Oaktown's diverse culinary scene. From award-winning restaurants to farmers markets, tiki bars to chicken shacks, Oakland has restaurants to fit the pickiest of palates.

Oakland's arts scene is a vibrant reflection of the city as a whole. Explore art galleries, take a tour of the street art and murals to get a look at the entire town, or relax and create yourself near the city's center along Lake Merritt.

When you fly nonstop to Oakland and the San Francisco Bay Area, you can also expect nonstop fun and adventure.
