Oakland is full of amazing art exhibits and hybrid galleries that double as retail shops, barber shops or bars, and we think you should check them all out. But if you happen to be wandering the streets, there are gorgeous murals all over The Town.

We recently took a mural tour with Community Rejuvenation Project (CRP) to scope out some of Oakland's most badass murals. There is a lot of history on these walls and taking the tour is the best way to learn about some of Oakland's history and community backstories, so we suggest booking today.

Below are a few of our favorites.
