Noteworthy Places to View Christmas Lights in Oakland

2020 was memorable – or should we say infamous for the disasters it brought. Before the notoriously terrible year comes to a close, the holidays are here along with hopes for holiday cheer. Although many holiday traditions are being altered or skipped this holiday season, there is still cheer to be found! In many places, including Oakland, a festive activity that is still socially-distant is viewing Christmas lights around the town.

Whatever you’re looking for this year, there are multiple options for a festive outing either walking outdoors or driving past in your car. Check out the list below for the top spots to get lost in the twinkle of Christmas lights!

Fourth Street in Berkeley

The Fourth Street lights in Berkeley are a Bay Area staple. The holiday lights on Fourth Street are entertaining and are inspiring – on every night at dusk for the season. They’re on display every night through the new year, three blocks worth of sparkling color!
