My husband and I took a quick trip down to California for the weekend. It was great to get away for a bit, explore Berkley with my friends, and really relax.
So now I am sitting at the airport waiting for my flight back to Seattle. The Oakland airport is under construction and the security is a bit chaotic. But you can get through here pretty quickly.
One of the things that we found that we love the most is the empty beaches. They made for some fun days in the sun. I found myself wishing I lived closer to the beach and not really wanting to go back inside.
We loved walking through Berkley. The flowers were in bloom, so many fantastic restaurants and curious little shops to keep you busy. We also managed to find the farmers market that was probably one of the best markets we have ever been to. There we found not only a great selection of fresh produce and food stands, but also a great assortment of orchids and live plants to take home.
Berkley is just a short hop from San Fransisco and I personally would rather say out of the city and enjoy the unique view from Berkley instead.
You can find a few really nice hotels right on the water with more affordable rates and specials.
Have you been to Berkley? What was your favorite thing to see or do?
