How to enjoy Berkeley

Berkeley certainly has a lot more to offer other than academia. When I’m not in class, one of my favorite things to do is try new restaurants. Some of the best I have tried that you might want to check out are Berkeley Thai House on Channing, Café Gratitude on Shattuck, and Fondue Fred’s on Telegraph. I think this is a great way to catch up with friends, take a break from the ramen, and enjoy some great food. If you are feeling adventurous, I would also really recommend checking out the eateries in San Francisco. The Mission District and North Beach are great places to explore and find good, cheep food.

I also really enjoy getting away from the books and out into the fresh air. One of the best ways to do this in Berkeley is to take an urban walk. Now, this may not sound like the most ideal outdoor experience, but Berkeley has dozens of rather secluded foot paths snaking throughout North Berkeley residential areas that are very fun to explore. You can purchase a book specifically on this topic, or just take a close look at most Berkeley maps to see exactly where they are. If you are looking for something that isn’t quite as tame, Tilden Park is a great resource right in our back yards. You can take the 67 all the way up the hills and enjoy miles of hiking trails, Lake Anza, which offers a beach and swimming area, and areas to picnic or BBQ.

This is just a little glimpse of a great city, but I hope these suggestions help you get to know Berkeley a little better!
