Oakland Vacations

Six miles across the East Bay from San Francisco is Oakland, an area that serves as one of the most important port cities in all of America. Many factors draw tourists in for Oakland vacations, and not just the 260 sunny days out of the year! Whether you're visiting for an easy route to San Francisco or to see the many cultural and historically significant sites in the area, "Oaktown" won't let you down.

Major Attractions

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

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.

Plan out your vacation by browsing Oakland packages on Travelocity. Not only will you find everything you need in one place, but you'll save up to $537 by booking your hotel and flight together.
