The holidays are a time when family and friends love to visit. Inspired by travel writer Tim Viall’s article in The Record, which you can read here, below are some of our favorite Stockton places to take out-of-town visitors during the holidays. Thanks for spreading the holiday love for Stockton, Tim!
"Christmas Lane" should be on every Stockton holiday list so we are adding to Tim's notes about this fantastic tradition. It is truly a display you need to see to believe. This sparkling Stockton tradition has been delighting residents and visitors for over 40 years. Thanks to dedicated homeowners, who collectively put on an amazing display of lights and decorations each year, there is an abundance of holiday cheer in north Stockton. "Christmas Lane" is located on Meadow Avenue, just west of Pershing Avenue.
Fun for the Whole Family
Head over to Skyzone Trampoline Park and get ready to have a blast. Let the younger generation expend all their holiday energy while you work off those holiday calories. Nothing says holiday togetherness like Ultimate Dodge ball.
Downtown Stockton has over 50 ethnically diverse eateries to satisfy any craving. While downtown this holiday season you can root for the Stockton Heat hockey team at the Stockton Arena; catch the new Star Wars movie at the city cinemas or take a leisurely stroll at sunset on the waterfront promenade and enjoy multiple examples of public art.
Lincoln Center, shops and restaurants
Lincoln Center is a local favorite featuring specialty shops, unique dining experiences, and plenty of holiday cheer. See Santa at the North Pole, enjoy a train or carriage ride, and see the Snow Village on display through January 1.
