Exploring the Bay Area

Vibrant. Dynamic. Cutting edge. The San Francisco Bay Area is a global hub of commerce, innovation, culture and recreation. UC Berkeley sits in the East Bay region with easy access to both San Francisco and Silicon Valley, and a few hours from Yosemite, Napa Valley, Point Reyes and Lake Tahoe. When visiting UC Berkeley, we encourage you to explore the area, hike in the hills, indulge in the California food scene and enjoy the culture and optimism of one of the most desirable areas in the world.
