Oakland

Upscale. Cultured. Fun.

Here, we love the finer things in life. The cafe scene. A good meal. The great outdoors. And for dessert, some shopping or a show with a cherry on top. The suburbs of Oakland are full of tree-lined streets, but don’t let our quiet neighborhoods fool you. We know how to have a good time. From our happenin’ downtowns (think Ferndale, Royal Oak and Birmingham) to the Detroit Zoo, and a diverse array of restaurants, theaters, golf courses, parks and concert venues in between, you’ll find plenty of fun and friends in this neck of the woods.

Travel Tip

When walking the exhibit halls in Henry Ford Museum, don’t miss the bus where Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, the chair in which Abraham Lincoln was assassinated and a camp bed slept on by George Washington.
