Why Oakland is one of the best places to visit in May?

Lake Merritt



Lake Merritt is probably one of the most famous and iconic landmarks in Oakland. It has been listed as a National Historic Landmark since 1963. There are a lot of activities to choose from, there's a walking and jogging path along its perimeter, a boating center, a fairy tale themed amusement park called Children's Fairyland and so much more. 


These are some of the activities happening in Lake Merritt for the month of May:


May 15th - Jr Center Art & Science, 10am – 3pm
Where: Junior Center Of Art & Science, 558 Bellevue Ave, Oakland, CA 94610

May 18th - Turn the Page! Children's Book Authors and Illustrator Event, 10:30am – 3:30pm

Where: Children's Fairyland, 699 Bellevue Ave, Oakland, CA 94610
