Bartenders worldwide know Oakland as the home of the Mai Tai cocktail, invented in Oakland in 1944 at Trader Vic's.

Oakland is also a focal point of the jazz and blues music scenes on the American West Coast, and is home to musicians adept in hip hop, funk, rhythm and blues, as well as punk rock, heavy metal and gangsta rap! You can drive you rental car to any number of cool concerts on any given evening in Oakland!

Driving tips in Oakland

Once you have picked up your rental car and are on the road in Oakland, there are many different ways you can enjoy the freedom to go wherever you want! Drive your cheap car rental to a professional sporting event. Depending on the time of year that you're in Oakland, you could catch a home run at an Oakland Athletics game – they were the Major League Baseball World Series champions in 1972-1974, and 1989 – or see some big hits at an Oakland Raiders game – they won the National Football League's Super Bowl in 1977, 1981 and 1983, but fell just short in 2003.

For an experience that's a bit less bone-crunching, drive your rental car to a performance of the Oakland Ballet. This first-class dance ensemble has performed in this city since 1965. You'll find its beautiful performances if you drive the car rental you book with us over to the Laney College Theater! And that's just a small part of Oakland's great arts & culture scene. Drive your rental car to the Uptown area and discover a large number of galleries – Oakland claims one of the highest concentrations of artists in the entire country!

Oakland's also a paradise for fine cuisine and fresh ingredients. You might take an afternoon away from your work appointments, or spend an early Saturday morning, to visit one of Oakland's locally grown produce markets, or the international food markets that represent the Bay Area's ethnic diversity.
