Named after famed "Call of the Wild Author" Jack London, Oakland's Jack London Square has been a well-known Bay Area landmark since the mid-1800s.
Lying at the heart of Oakland, California's port operations, this is the only mixed-use waterfront area in the city that's open to the public. It is one of the premier commercial, dining, and recreational districts in the region, and it offers options in fresh seafood, California cuisine, authentic Italian dining, and much more. The Yukon cabin once belonging to the location's namesake stands at the very end of the square.
This building is frequently visited by tourists who throw coins inside, much like they would at a traditional wishing well. In addition to numerous eateries and breweries, the square also features new condo developments, a cinema complex, and a bowling alley among many other venues and attractions.Places nearby:
