Walking Tour - Old Oakland



Old Oakland Walking Tour

Walk through what was once the western terminus of the Transcontinental Railroad! Formerly Oakland’s bustling downtown district in the days of railroads and streetcars, this area’s grand, brick, commercial Victorian buildings, now restored, continue to thrive as offices, galleries and eateries. Visit the historic Washington Inn, G.B. Ratto & Co. International Grocers, Swans Marketplace and the “Friends of the Library” bookstore.

Meet at 10:00 a.m. in front of Ratto's International Market & Deli at 821 Washington Street.

Parking is available at the Oakland Convention Center, enter at 11th and Clay streets.
