Just across the Bay Bridge, Berkeley and its neighbor Oakland get little of the buzz that SF does on the other side of the water. Still, Berkeley has great restaurants, a funky vibe, lovely parks and a significant place in the counterculture narrative of the 1960's (and today). For an awesome view, drive up to the overlook at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science, and appreciate the grandeur of this urban area's incomparable natural setting.

With an unending number of boutiques, cafes and food, Berkeley is one of those urban paradises that keeps you from ever wanting to leave. I love spending the day wandering around UC's leafy campus, then grabbing a sidewalk table at a cafe to watch Berkeley's generally good-looking population stroll by.

Wacky. Quirky. The rebel base. Whatever you want to characterize Berkeley as, it certainly has its own rhythm and beat. It's anchored by the large campus of UC Berkeley and many of the businesses are centered around students, but there is still quite a bit to explore outside of the campus, too. Check out the gourmet ghetto in the north or check out the marina area toward the west.

Berkeley is a city on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay in Northern California, United States. Its neighbors to the south are the cities of Oakland and Emeryville. To the north is the city of Albany and the unincorporated community of Kensington. The eastern city limits coincide with the county line (bordering Contra Costa County), which generally follows the ridge line of the Berkeley Hills. Berkeley is located in northern Alameda County. The population was 112,580 at the 2010 census.

Berkeley has a stigma for being San Francisco's slightly more grungy hippie sister, and I'm certainly not about to argue against that. It's the kind of place that you visit if you want amazing ethnic food, and an atmosphere that still holds stubbornly on to the ideals and vibe of the city since the 60's. Not to sound like a tired cliche, but it really does have everything. From a vibrant music and dance scene with Ashkenaz down on San Pablo Ave, all the way up to the old-school beauty of the UC campus and the more refined homes on the hill. An absolute must-visit is Tilden Park, a wonderful tree-filled surprise on Grizzly Peak Blvd up in the hills.
