Walk around storied Mills College and take in one of their evening lectures or attend an event.
Beautiful walk and architecture, unbelievably peaceful oasis behind gates in the middle of busy Oakland. The pool offers lap swim and recreational swim for "friends of the college" for under $7.
One of the great private women's college. Established 160 years ago. 5 minute drive. www.mills.edu/
Gorgeous Treelined campus. I go every week to swim and soak in the hot tub at the heated Pool. I also enjoy meditating in the small quiet chapel or walking the labyrinth outside.
