We went to Lake Merritt Area. There is a historic mansion there which is quite nice. It is two story and interesting to see. It is called the Camron-Stanfor House. more »
Really cool restored Victorian house with an interesting history. Tours are $5 but only open at specific times on the weekends. Check before going. They have changing exhibits. Well worth a visit!
The grounds and views are great, would have given 5 star but BEWARE parking is horrible. There is a few spots but you need to get there super early. Staff was GREAT!
