What can I say, I was born in this hilly city. In the old area that is near Mission. I grew up coming back and forth from different cities and always ending up coming here to be my port. Whenever I travel I come here and stop by at least to visit my Grandparents. So many cool places to eat, ...

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.

Taking the ferry to Sausalito is the perfect way to escape the city for a day. It's a straightforward and scenic journey. I took the MUNI to Embarcadero station and walked to the Ferry Building. On Saturdays and Sundays, the Ferry Building has an outdoor craft market in front, with people selling a range of things from jewelry to paintings ...

San Rafael is the pretty central business district of Marin, and a lot more too. It has great restaurants, shops, and theaters. It boasts Terrapin Crossroads is a music venue owned by Phil Lesh, and The Marin Civic hosts a variety of performances. Whatever you need you can most likely accomplish it in San Rafael. It is surrounded by beauty, ...

Don't believe everything you've heard about Oakland, full of great people, neighborhoods, a lot of culture and booming small businesses. Public transportation is easily accessible and just a train ride away from the city.

I really like Alameda, but there's still so much to explore. Cross into Oakland (briefly) and they go over this cute green bridge into Alameda. Cute, Victorian styled homes, lovely small businesses and a lot of liveliness to the neighborhoods. There is a neat Marina area with a park and area to enjoy a walk along the waterfront. A great ...

Millbrae is a nice place to stop before making it all the way to San Francisco Airport if you have some time to kill. I fuel up my rental car then go to In 'n Out Burgers.

I lived in Emeryville for a year and enjoyed it very much. I don't think I would've wanted to stay there any longer than I did, as the construction of new condos would mean more congestion that it already had. The majority of people within the city limits any given day are usually non-residents, as Emeryville caters to a lot ...

Kind of a boring town populated by a lot of different ethnic groups. This city is typically cold and foggy but there's convenient access to the Bart and a fairly big shopping complex with all the basic shopping necessities (trader joes, market, restaurant, Home Depot, etc.)

One old joke is that Albany is where Berkeley Radicals go to die. And a lot of people don't even know where Albany is located. I sometimes mention Berkeley first or mention Albany Hill or the Race Track. It also borders Berkeley, El Cerrito, Richmond, and Kensington. Gayle also scoffs when I sometimes tell her that Albany in some ways ...

It's embarrassing how long it took me to finally visit Stinson Beach. And, being from Hawaii, I'm very picky about my beaches. In Northern California, Stinson is the closest to the beaches of my childhood: the sand is soft and clean, the weather is warmer than in SF, and it's a relaxed atmosphere. I love it!

Strategically located right at the intersection of the US101and CA92, Foster City is very convenient for shopping, dining, and living.

For living: one can find serenity in lagoon front ...
