Come to the largest Pride celebration in the nation, enjoy a summery day on the lake in Oakland, and listen to legendary entertainers perform in San Jose. Whatever you decide, you’ll be sure to find something fun to do along the Capitol Corridor!
No longer standing in the shadow of its neighbor across the Bay, Oakland has become a destination of its own in the San Francisco Bay Area. An exploding food and drink scene, along with a bounty of options for outdoor adventure — thanks to a geography that spans gorgeous shoreline and rugged hills — as well as an influx of millennials who’ve fled the astronomical housing costs of San Francisco, have all helped put Oakland on the map as one of California’s most vibrant cities. It’s a must-visit city along the Capitol Corridor, the 170-mile train route that runs between Sacramento/Auburn and San Jose. More Weekend Getaway: 48 Hours in Oakland
