The capital of "flower power" is also a world-famous university city. It's lost none of its charm over the years and still attracts plenty of young people looking to do an English course in Berkeley.
The culture, cuisine and proximity to San Francisco are some of Berkeley's best perks. After visiting the book shops and cafés in the city centre, head to the surrounding hills at Tilden Regional Park, where you'll be amazed by the varied natural landscapes. Go on a boat ride in the bay, visit the famous university campus, roller blade at Mission Beach, have a cocktail by the shore or play a game of beach volleyball! Discover the American way of life.
