Serena Bartlett started the GrassRoutes Travel series with Oakland because it was a mystery why a vibrant energized city like that didn’t have a decent guidebook to call its own. So, to point residents, travelers, and sojourners to the best cafes, markets, music, art, contemplative places, and friendly scenes, here is the New View of the City Next Door.

    I purchased this book a few years ago at a thrift store for a dollar. My mom was coming to visit and I wanted to have a guidebook to lend her. I wasn't expecting much, but this has honestly been an absolutely indispensable guide that I refer to again and again and again. It's true that my edition is outdated, and some of the info has changed (places have closed or moved, etc) but I've made a habit of double checking things online and making note of any changes in the margins of the book.

It's true that my edition is outdated, and some of the info has changed (places have closed or moved, etc) but I've made a habit of double checking things online and making note of any changes in the margins of the book. Whenever I have a visitor I end up using it *constantly* . As a vegan who loves to cook and doesn't like to go out to eat, I frequently don't know where to send people to eat, especially if they are picky carnivores. This book solves that for me, as well as lots of destination suggestions. As a local, I can say this is a handy little book that shows people a locals-bay area, not a touristy one. I'd recommend it to other locals who want to have a book on hand to loan to their guests, especially if their guests are 'grown-ups' or relatives.
