If you're visiting with children or young at heart yourself, you should seek out Oakland hotels near either the Oakland Zoo or the playfully magical park known as Children's Fairyland, as both are attractions that are great for the entire family. Want to explore a little local history? The Oakland Museum of California or the Grand Lake Theater might be more your speed. The Lake Chabot Regional Park is a great place to take in the area's natural beauty. If you plan on visiting, look into car rentals in Oakland, as the park is a 30-minute drive outside the city.
Festivals and Events
