Take a moment to review this Berkeley city information. Don't hesitate to call with questions.
With its unique excellence, unusual style and pure energy, the City of Berkeley is one of the most desirable communities in the Bay Area. Situated directly across the bay from San Francisco, Berkeley residents enjoy a waterfront with a marina and sailing club as well as spectacular vistas from hillside developments.
The influence of the University of California ensures the city's international reputation as an intellectual center. Home of the Free Speech Movement and political protests of the '60s, the dynamic campus community influences every aspect of Berkeley life.
At the same time, many of its leading companies are among the Bay Area's largest and fastest growing. Key industries include architecture, multimedia, biotechnology, software, and innovative 'energy bar' food processing.
Amenities in Berkeley are nothing less than exceptional. Shopping and commercial districts combine charming stores with over 400 restaurants. Several senior centers, wonderful discovery museums for children, world-class libraries and galleries, a year-long calendar of performing arts, the Berkeley Rose Garden, the 3,000-boat Berkeley Marina, shoreline trails, and Tilden Park Golf Course are just a few of the attractions.
