Cal Berkeley has it all-academic excellence, a beautiful campus, and a quirky, crazy neighborhood. You need to visit to experience a place where radical and retired are as active as ever. Proud to be a BEAR!

Great architecture and gardens! Sather Tower was magnificent. Loved the carillon concert! Only $1 per person per ride if you use the campus bus system. Take the bus to the UC Berkeley University Botanical Gardens.
