Berkeley Guide

There are plenty of cultural things to see and do when in Berkeley. A favourite of many is the 90 minute tour of the university campus which culminates in a climb to the top of the campanile tower which gives sweeping views out over the bay.
The university’s botanical garden is also a good place to visit; combining research, history and simply beautiful plants, it’s home to over 12,000 species and is a great venue for relaxation.
If you’re interested in model railways then Tilden Park is a must. There’s a permanent track laid out so fans can bring their own locomotives and watch them fly.

Berkeley Info

Berkeley is best known for its university campus and also for being one of the most politically liberal cities in the US. Its liberalism is thought to stem from the early thinkers who either chose Berkeley as their home such as the philosopher George Berkeley or from the many radical students who attended the University of California there. The city is in a beautiful location on San Francisco Bay but has a sub fault of the infamous San Andreas Fault running through it making it susceptible to earthquakes.

Berkeley Trivia:
  • The city was named after the philosopher and bishop, George Berkeley
  • It’s home to the Berkeley campus of the University of California, the state’s oldest
  • Berkeley was originally part of land given by the King of Spain to one of his soldiers, Luis Peralta
  • The city is located on the eastern side of San Francisco Bay
