Situated at the geographical center of the San Francisco Bay Area, Oakland, California, is the largest and most established of the East Bay cities. Located in Alameda County, Oakland encompasses 56 square miles of land, with 19 miles of coastline to the west and magnificent rolling hills to the east. The city benefits from immediate access to rail, air, sea, freeway, and bus service to all major employment and residential centers in the greater Bay Area. Oakland's central site at the crossroads of major freeways and transit systems means the city is closer to more of the region's workforce than most other cities in the Bay Area. Oakland is also an international gateway with more than $24 billion worth of goods passing through the Port of Oakland each year. Besides the commercial exchange of goods and services, Oakland is also active in cultural exchanges with its Sister Cities around the globe and was ranked number five In New York Times 45 Places To Go In 2012.
