Berkeley (pop: 102,743), located in the Bay Area, is the home of the University of California Berkeley. The oldest of the California campuses, UC Berkeley has been a bastion of liberal thought on the west coast, as in the 60's, the school was a hippie haven. But besides the hippies, Berkeley has wonderful commercial districts with every type of food imaginable (except some good ribs...grrr...) and typical college housing. UC Berkeley's landmarks include Sather Gate and the Sather Campanile. From Telegraph to Shattuck, Berkeley is always vibrant and interesting.
