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.
Once you've sifted through Oakland vacation packages and found the one that works best for you, it's time to plan out your daily activities. Oakland hosts numerous festivals and events throughout the year. Jack of All Trades takes place on the second Saturday each month and features craft beer, live music, and artisan crafts of all sorts. Between May and October, you can also enjoy food, music, and performers at Bites off Broadway. If you're lucky enough to be in town in early August, make sure to check out the Urban Wine Xperience for the best in local cuisine and urban wineries.
