Sharing a close proximity to the major urban area of San Francisco, Oakland is home to more than earthquakes and seaports. Serving as a city of many colors, Oakland is known for being one of the most ethnically diverse cities in California, making it steeped in various cultures. The city experienced a boom after the devastating 1906 San Francisco Quake, as many Golden Gate City residents moved to the area to build new homes. The city's growth continued through the World War II era, when people moved there from various regions of the country to obtain industrial jobs and become involved in the war effort. Many major corporations have set up shop in the area, including Clorox, Dreyer's, Ask.com and Pandora Radio.
The city's rapid growth, as well as the strong corporate presence, made it a natural candidate for a wide variety of professional and amateur sports. Oakland is home to one of the NFL's most prominent teams, the Raiders, cultivating many of the sport's most popular names - like John Madden. The city also fosters the NBA's Golden State Warriors and MLB's Oakland Athletics.
Those who would rather have a night on the town without worrying about competitive activities will have plenty of options in Oakland, which has a strong music scene - ranging from genres like punk, jazz, blues, rock, reggae and even country-western. Many music enthusiasts might actually be surprised to discover that the Oakland blues scene is one of the most reputable in the nation. Those who wish to sample some of the greatest jazz and blues bands in the country can attend the world-class venue known as Yoshi's. Visitors can also take advantage of the many cultural events that take place here every year, such as the Oakland Greek Festival, Chinatown Streetfest, Germanfest, Oakland Inspiration Awards and the Oakland International Film Festival.
Those who would rather enjoy the great outdoors can visit recreational hotspots like Mosswood Park, the Oakland Zoo, Lake Merritt, Morcom Rose Garden or the Redwood Regional Park.
