The Oakland Temple is a wonderful place to visit whether or not you are a member of the church. Most times I go to enjoy the terrace on the second level above the courtyard reflecting pool just in front if the temple through the front...More
We had such a good experience visiting this temple. The views are amazing. Make sure you walk across the street and up the stairs to the overflow parking lot for the most amazing picture spot. The visitors center was worth the time and I loved...More
I use to come here every time I got a chance. I never went into the visitor's center or the temple until yesterday. They have a visitor's center anyone can go into. You can learn about the temple, the mormon religion, and the history of...More

Honestly , It All depends.
If you are well-travelled and Poor urban areas don't scare you, Fruitvale (during day) is fine. You can get great Mexican food for cheap and the area is very colorful and lively. But as Namsmom pointed out, like any urban, less wealthy neighborhoods, there are some crimes around there. If you are getting out of bart and hopping onto Uber, you should be fine but you have to be aware of your surroundings and don't look and act the way that you standout too much.
If you want to play it safe, take the Bart to Rockridge , grab Brunch or Lunch with your friends in Rockridge . Its a wonderful (and extremely wealthy and safe) neighborhood with many great cafes and restaurants . then take the Uber to the temple. Temples area is safe, its in the hilly suburbs and there isn't much out there other than the temple .
