Many of Oakland’s most popular attractions are located close to Berkeley, making it a smart choice as a place to base yourself during your visit. Two attractions that should be at the top of every visitor’s list is the fabulous Berkeley Repertory Theater and the iconic Berkeley Community Theater. If you have time, don’t miss Doe Library and Sather Gate.
To better understand Oakland, visit one of its museums and theaters. There are many excellent places where you can spend a morning including the Lawrence Hall of Science and the Judah L. Magnes Museum. See local and touring talent strut their stuff at Greek Theater and the Pacific Film Archive. If you enjoy art, enjoy the collections at the Berkeley Art Museum.
Get active out-of-doors at the many beautiful destinations nearby. Relax and enjoy the fresh air. Follow the paths through botanical displays, throw a frisbee, or just relax in the shade at Rose Garden, People's Park and the University of California Botanical Gardens.
See Oakland favourites, the California Golden Bears, take on their rivals at the iconic Memorial Stadium. To look like a local, don’t forget to pack some blue and gold, the colors of the California Golden Bears.
