Why Berkeley?

Why Berkeley?

Perched on San Francisco Bay, the city of Berkeley is set in the thick of Northern California's vibrant cultural experience. It offers a wealth of performing and visual arts, festivals, shopping, and restaurants. San Francisco itself is only five stops away by rapid transit. A striking array of natural attractions are also in easy striking distance, including redwood forests, whitewater rafting, and Pacific beaches.
