Learn from Fern

We recently received a card from the local organization, Fern Tiger Associates. Aside from being beautifully crafted, it had a lot of great facts about our neighborhood of Oakland. So we thought that we would share some of the things that we learned today:

  • Oakland is the 8th largest city in the state and 44th in the U.S.
  • Rand McNally crowned Oakland as having the best weather in the nation
  • Oakland is the most ethnically diverse city in the nation, with more than 150 languages spoken
  • Oakland is comprised of more than 50 distinct neighborhoods
  • Oakland was the location for films such as the “Pursuit of Happyness”
  • Oakland has “sister cities” all over the world (see map)

We all know that Oakland is a great place, and these factoids just highlight why we love it so much!
