University of California Botanical Garden

University of California Botanical Garden is located within the campus of University of California Berkeley. Open to the public since 1890, this is no less than an outdoor living museum that boasts over 12,000 species of flora and fauna. The garden can be rented for private events, wedding receptions, twilight tours, summer walks and concerts.

The Berkeley Rose Garden

Occupying a massive 3.64 acres, the Berkeley Rose Garden boasts over 3000 rose bushes and 250 unique rose varieties. This fragrant city park features six luscious terraces, four tennis courts, and a spectacular sunset view of the Golden Gate Bridge. Historians and architecture enthusiasts will appreciate the New Deal roots of the park's Depression-era construction, as well as the charming First Bay Tradition-styled design of the park and the surrounding residential neighborhood. The garden blooms most dramatically in mid-May.

Golden Gate Park

In the late 1800s, California's first state engineer, William Hammond Hall, and his assistant, a Scotsman named John McLaren, transformed more than 1000 acres (405 hectares) of sand dunes into a wondrous haven in the midst of the city, christened Golden Gate Park after the eponymous strait nearby. Stretching over 50 blocks from Stanyan Street to the Pacific Ocean, the lush landscape is etched with numerous trails for walking, jogging, biking and horseback riding, alongside a golf course, bowling greens, a lake with paddle boats, soccer fields and a baseball diamond. From the Japanese Tea Garden and the Conservatory of Flowers to the California Academy of Sciences and the de Young Museum, San Francisco's Golden Gate Park encompasses a wealth of scenic beauty and cultural intrigue within is expansive embrace. There are also several playgrounds, a quaint carousel, an aquarium, a buffalo reserve and an outdoor bandshell where open-air concerts are hosted each summer.

Ocean Beach

Located at the western end of Golden Gate Park is San Francisco's biggest beach. It extends from Fort Funston in the south, to the Cliff House in the north. Typically, the cold winds, fog and low San Francisco temperatures deter any regular beach activities (unless you're lucky enough to be there on a hot day) but visitors fly kites or just walk along and admire the views of Seal Rocks and Point Lobos. Adventure seekers love surfing here. There are also bonfire pits provided on the beach for the general public; to claim one, go early in the evening.

Lindsay Wildlife Experience

Located in Walnut Creek, this museum is a multi-purpose facility that cares for injured and endangered animals from all over the state of California. It operates the largest veterinary rehabilitation hospital in the United States, treating over 6000 wild animals annually. In addition, they have educational tours for children, and a learning theater.

Tightwad Hill

Hikers, lovers, and photographers go for the stunning panorama of the Berkeley skyline. Fans of college football go to join the spirited "Tightwad Hill" crowd in their "free seats" overlooking Memorial Stadium. It may not be easy to get here, but once you've made it, you immediately sense the tradition steeped within these grounds. Though it looks more impressive from afar, you can find the giant, block-letter "C" on this hill, where it has received hundreds of coatings of paint since its original construction in 1905. Also, during football games the California Victory Canon fires from Charter Hill after every Cal Bears touchdown and victory. Please note that the hill is steep and un-lit at night.
