Some travelers head to Oakland from New York for business, while others are seeking a fun California vacation. Once you arrive at Oakland International Airport (OAK), there are many things to see and do, even before you leave the airport.
In Terminal 2, you might want to check out the Airport Public Art Gallery, as well as the Oakland Aviation Museum, which is located in the North Field. For the golfers out there, the Metropolitan Golf Links is located right at airport, and is perfect for distressing after your flight.
The airport is located off exit 98th Avenue on Highway 880 North. From there, you can take the 880 north to Lake Merritt to watch the boats or have a meal on the pier. If you're traveling Oakland with young kids, they're sure to love Children's Fairyland and the Chabot Space and Science Center. Head to the Oakland Zoo to see California wildlife, as well as exotic animals from all over the world. For a little nighttime entertainment, you can catch a show at the Paramount Theatre.
Flying from John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) to Oakland International Airport (OAK) will take you roughly five and a half hours. Rental car shuttle buses operate between terminals to connect you with transportation downtown.
