Berkeley, California
Just 10 miles northeast of San Francisco is a city linked inextricably to the 1960's, when students at the University of California at Berkeley erupted into political protest spurred by radical idealism. These days you'll still find gentler remnants of the old hippie spirit on Berkeley's famous Telegraph Avenue, which is lined with indie bookstores and music shops, ethnic eateries, and street vendors hawking tie-dye clothing. Once you've soaked up some 1960's spirit, check out the University's campus (which includes a botanical garden), break out your credit card at the upscale boutiques on Fourth Street or enjoy a local organic meal at one of the city's many restaurants.
