On 1 Jan 1975, my first New Year’s Day here, I went on a hike in the Berkeley Hills. The flowers were fragrant, the skies were blue, and it was warm enough to just wear a t-shirt. I knew I’d live in Berkeley for the rest of my life!
Here’s where we talk about what makes living here special —events & festivals, arts and entertainment, parks, and more. Got kids? The schools section provides links to our school districts and nearby private/independent schools.
We’ll help you move here with relocation resources, rental, and city information. Our bike, bus, BART, and auto tips help you get around town. For other “moving” events, read the earthquake section.
Welcome to the San Francisco East Bay. We love living here; you will too!
