Coliving in Oakland

Just across the water from San Francisco, Oakland is the charming, more affordable city in the Bay Area. This is why many digital nomads forgo the pricey rents of San Francisco for a sweet coliving space in Oakland.

If you take a boat over from San Francisco, you’ll arrive in Jack London Square. This is often the first stop for new visitors for a boardwalk stroll, the morning farmer’s market, or a visit to the only public presidential yacht, the USS Potomac.

Oakland offers great California weather, but locals contend that they get the best weather in all of the Bay Area. Boasting an average 261 sunny days each year, you can see why the coliving trend continues to grow here.

There’s no shortage of things to do in the city, having been awarded the most exciting city with the most movie theatres, theatre companies, and museums per square mile. Art plays a large part in the local culture. There are many open mic nights around town and endless murals outside. Take yourself on a street art tour on your day off. If you feel the need to get out of the city, day trips to San Francisco and Alcatraz, Napa Valley and beyond are easily arranged.

Getting around town is easy by ferry, bus, train, and even some free shuttles. Due to the spillover techies Silicon Valley scattering around the bay, the demand for great food has grown. Classic Oakland eats include fried chicken and oyster po’boys but you can find everything from artisanal donuts to tasty Italian fare.

Here are some fun facts about Oakland:

- Lake Merritt is a saltwater lake and home to the “Oak-Ness” monster
- It’s the birthplace of the word “hella.” Remember that next time you taste some pizza that’s hella good.
- Walt Disney mostly copied Disneyland’s famous Alice in Wonderland ride from Oakland’s Fairyland in the 1950s

What is coliving?

Coliving is a new trend amongst millennials for renting shared apartments. Whether you're moving to Oakland for work or just looking for a new apartment, coliving in Oakland is a good way to save money and live with like-minded people. Co-living places people from different backgrounds together and encourages them to interact, collaborate and form new friendships. When compared to dorms, coliving is much more attractive, since it's relatively inexpensive, all-inclusive and allows you to rent a furnished room with an individual lease.
