JACK LONDON SQUARE
Petit Futé's opinion on JACK LONDON SQUARE
On the harbour, Jack London Square is Oakland's main tourist attraction. Follow the footsteps of Croc-Blanc (hero of the eponymous Jack London novel) who takes you to a small circuit in the neighborhood, and will lead you in particular to the grandeur of the writer who admires the seaside. Under palm trees, the real log hut that he lived in a few months at Henderson Creek in Canada was restored to the Klondike Gold Rush in 1897-98, inspiring many of his new and novels. The logs have been transported from the Yukon to the present. Not far away, Heinold's First and Last Chance Saloon (the saloon of the first and last chance) still exists and keeps the work table of the writer. The walk around Jack London stops at the feet of another statue, that of the famous white wolf!
