About Berkeley


A Smart Place To Live


The city of Berkeley is located on the east shore of the San Francisco Bay, and surrounded by Oakland, Emeryville, and Albany. Berkeley is named after the Irish eighteenth-century bishop and philosopher George Berkeley. An air of intelligence and creativity permeates this smart city, especially with the oldest campus in the University of California system, University of California, Berkeley and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are deep-seated here!


Telegraph Avenue is best known for its historic bohemian reflection! Bookstores, music stores, cafes, restaurants, clothing and specialty boutiques, ice cream and sweet shops, beauty and health spas all line up and down the avenue with unique names such as Crepes À-Go-Go, Shakespeare & Co., Sweetheart Café, Rasputin Music, Wet Seal, and Lhasa Karnak to name a few…


Jump on your bike and pedal through Berkeley! It’s the safest cyclist and pedestrian commuting capital in the nation. Tilden Regional Park offers an array of fun activities  for the entire family including kid’s day camp, equestrian horseback riding, hiking trails, a golf course, and botanical garden. Sign up for dance classes at the California Jazz Conservatory and feel like “all that jazz”!
