Downtown Oakland is the heart and soul of the East Bay, as well as a haven for a youngish, overwhelmingly male, hip crowd that is apparently chronically ill if you consider the large usage of medical marijuana. Oakland is mildly earthy, but also artsy, trendy and affordable. This hood has lots to offer: festivals, First Friday's, Lake Merritt, Jack London Square, a seven-minute commute to the Embarcadero and numerous booze and food options.
