Berkeley is actually the city on the opposite side of the bay bridge from San Francisco. Great place with open minds, public transportation system, suberb cuisine plus a great free-thinking university.
University of California Berkeley is like a place no other. Situated between Oakland and San Francisco, there’s barely a scarcity of events for any type of student. If you want laid-back and casual time much like me, you could meet up with your pals in your dormitories or perhaps at one of the libraries there. Additionally you can see a few of the local spots there, including the streets packed with specialty restaurants, stores and bars, merely outside the campus grounds. There aren’t that much of commercial chain merchants there, like California Pizza Kitchen but if you ask me, I think it lets preserve the essence of the place.
