A former focal point of hippie culture and the Civil Rights movement during the 1960s, Berkeley is still a magnet for artists and revolutionaries due to its proximity to one of the most prestigious universities in the world. It’s also only a 20 minute drive to downtown San Francisco, where you can ride the city’s iconic cable carts or indulge in fresh seafood on Fisherman’s Wharf while overlooking the infamous island of Alcatraz.
