Located about two miles east of central Berkeley,
the neighborhood of Berkeley Hills
offers spacious houses
for rent with modern kitchens and stunning views of the hills, valleys, canyons, and San Francisco Bay.
Locals in this neighborhood love to hang out at breathtaking, 2,000-acre Tilden Regional Park with its carousel, hiking trails, scenic views, picnic areas, and swimming holes. Enjoy the much smaller Berkeley Rose Garden with its terraced plantings of roses and views of San Francisco Bay. If you like rock climbing or bouldering, visit Grotto Rock Park or Cragmont Rock Park, which also features views of the Bay.
Buy beautiful 19th- and 20th-century Japanese prints at the Scriptum art gallery, and perch atop the fiberglass whale at the Lawrence Hall of Science. Savor some American cuisine at Foothill restaurant.
