Home to some of the best food, history, and outdoor activity in the Bay Area, Berkeley is a city that’s impossible not to like. Visitors flock to the sun-drenched Berkeley Marina to relax in the grass at Cesar Chavez Park, fly a kite, or walk along the bay. For more outdoor fun, head up to Indian Rock Park, featuring fun rocky hiking trails and fantastic views of the San Francisco Bay. Take the time to explore the University of California Berkeley to get acquainted with one of California’s most important institutions of higher learning. Snap a photo from the top of Sather Tower, the third tallest bell tower in the world and an icon of the university.

Back in the city center, make your way to Telegraph Avenue to get a grip on Berkeley’s unique culture. This avenue is filled with thrift shops, discount bookstores, live music venues, and some of the city’s best bars. Stop in at Amoeba Music, the world’s largest independent record store, to get lost among the staggering selection of albums.
