Reasons to Rent in Oakland

California’s Bay Area is world-renowned for its culture and cuisine. Alexan Webster’s excellent location in downtown Oakland puts it all right outside your door.

Getting Around the Bay Area

Oakland is separated from San Francisco by the San Francisco Bay. Fortunately, the Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) makes it easy to get across the bay to San Francisco without the headache of driving. The 19th St/Oakland BART station is less than a 10 minute walk from the Alexan Webster apartments. Take BART into the city and ride the MUNI to explore Union Square and San Francisco Chinatown.

Eating Out in Oakland

Alexan Webster’s neighborhood is full of diverse cuisine.

Swing by Shawarmaji on Franklin Street or Marwa Market and Grill on Telegraph Avenue for Middle Eastern fare. Both halal restaurants offer delicious wraps and falafel dishes.

Oakland is home to plenty of sushi restaurants. Standout spots include Ginza, a low-key, no-frills spot on Broadway — not too far from the ferry stop. For a slightly more upscale take, reserve a table at Delage– just a mile south of Alexan Webster on 9th Street.

Looking to stick to classic American fare? Don’t miss Scott’s Seafood Grill and Bar in Jack London Square. In addition to seafood options, it’s renowned as one of the best steakhouses in the area. If you’re in the mood for a simple burger and fries, Trueburger has you covered with a walkable location that’s just a three-minute stroll from Alexan Webster.

This lovely section of Oakland is an excellent spot for a jog or a stroll, as it features a popular walking path around the lake’s 3.5-mile perimeter. The Children’s Fairyland theme park and the Junior Center of Art and Science museum are located here.
