Surrounded by the bustling city of Oakland
Surrounded by the bustling city of Oakland, the suburb of Piedmont in California has a lot to offer its visitors. With a distinctive style (several 1920s-style mansions still grace its hills) and lovely tree-lined streets, Piedmont is sure to delight. Here are some options for things to do when visiting the area.
Since Piedmont is a small and residential area, it won't take long to feel like you're part of the community. With a small commercial district, you can spend the day shopping or eating, all while getting a feel for the quaint neighborhood and those who call it home. Relax for a sunny afternoon in Glen Echo Park, or release some tension at Piedmont Springs. Grab a burrito at the local taqueria or share some tapas with friends. Despite its size, Piedmont certainly has a lot to explore and enjoy!
Of course, a visit to Piedmont warrants a visit to Oakland, one of California's top 10 largest cities (as well as the most ethnically diverse major city in the United States). There's no limit of activities and sightseeing to be found in Oakland, so carve out a large block of time to explore if you decide to broaden your scope beyond Piedmont. Cultural events are available daily, from live theater to galleries and museums. Explore nature at the Oakland Zoo or by relaxing (or kayaking) on the Bay. Catch a Raiders game or some all-American baseball with the Oakland A's at the Alameda Coliseum. With a little bit of something for everyone, Oakland is sure to offer an exciting day trip from Piedmont.
Once you're in Oakland, Las Vegas is only a short (and cheap) flight away. Why not add some extra excitement to your visit with casino games and amazing shows? Whether you're looking for high-stakes poker or simple slots, Las Vegas will certainly fit the bill. Gambling, whether in person or in online casinos, can be a great way to boost your adrenaline and share in a fun, social activity. Better yet? You can put those winnings toward your next California vacation. Bon voyage!
