Oakland Car Rentals
Finding great rental cars in Oakland is simple!
Oakland is a thriving and diverse city within the San Francisco Bay Area, and is a must-see for kids and adults alike. With a population of 390,724, according to the 2010 U.S. Census, Oakland is the fourth most populous city in California, and it’s no secret why so many flock to Oakland's urban amenities: With family-friendly attractions at every turn, you and your family are bound to fall in love with this city. Oakland's accepting, fun-loving nature will lift your spirits as you discover unique museums, imaginative kids' paradises and idyllic neighborhoods. An Oakland car rental is a must, as you won't want to miss anything the Bay Area has to offer.
A storybook setting
Families traveling in the Oakland area will not want to miss the chance to experience Children's Fairyland. Take your Oakland rental car to this hidden wonderland, where you'll find an enchanting world of storybook sets, rides where shorter stature is a help and not a hindrance, and more. Since 1950, Children's Fairyland has been delighting both little and big kids with its whimsy and charm. Attractions like Jack & Jill Hill, the Alice in Wonderland Tunnel, Peter Rabbit's Garden and the Fairy Music Tunnel will entertain your kids and bring joy to your family's vacation.
A work of art
Oakland's Museum of Children's Art is the perfect place to engage your little one's mind while allowing him or her to have fun. Your Oakland rental car will get you there, but it’s up to you to introduce your children to a world where learning can be fun! The Museum of Children's Art, or MOCHA, gives kids the opportunity to create art with their families in the museum. From art classes to hands-on projects, parent-child activities to story time, kids will gain an appreciation for art in all of its forms.
Playing in the trees
Don't take your kids to California without showing them the redwoods. There are numerous ways to immerse your children into the nearby groves of these fascinating and abundant trees. Make use of your Oakland car rental and take the drive to nearby Berkeley, where you'll find the Redwood Valley Railway. This charming train will enthrall your little ones as you take a ride around the valley, weaving in and out of towering trees. For another option, visit the city of Oakland's Hardy Park in the Greenbelt. Quiet redwood groves, butterfly gardens, play structures and climbing walls make this area notoriously kid-friendly, while adults will appreciate the respite from busy urban life.
As the hub city for the East Bay, Oakland is home to more than 380,000 residents, one of the West Coast’s busiest ports, several major corporations, including Clorox and Kaiser Permanente, as well as corporate headquarters for national retailers like Dreyer's and Cost Plus World Markets.
