On the East Side of the San Francisco Bay, explore the historic neighborhood of Berkeley. Visit Telegraph Avenue, south of the University of Berkeley, and enjoy quaint cafes, unique shops and music stores. Berkeley is the birthplace of California cuisine and the epicenter of the Bay Area’s food renaissance. Its recreational options stretch from the water of the Bay to the hills of Tilden Park. Pack a picnic and relax at the parks, or catch a show at sunset at the Greek Theater.
