The city of Berkeley has a reputation for an upbeat culture, prestigious education, and a variety of dining options to meet almost anyone’s pallet. It’s an attractive visit for any adult, but it also offers plenty of activities for the kids. You probably won’t have time to do them all, but a revisit to the city will be in your future after your first trip.

With plenty of sunny days, the Berkeley weather makes a visit to the park a must-do with the family. With thousands of acres, there isn’t a shortage of things to do. The kids will love the Nature Area, which is full of campgrounds, picnic spots, and hiking trails.
Feeding the ducks and goats at the Little Farm is sure to be a hit with your children. After lunch, you can go for a ride on the merry-go-round or a trip on the steam trains. You won’t have time to do all Tilden has to offer in one day, but you’ll have so much fun!
The Berkeley Public Library
Okay, you might think to yourself that the kids wouldn’t like a trip to the library, but this one is remarkable. The Central Branch has one floor that is entirely for children.
Thousands of children’s books make it an oasis of learning and fun for the kids. What is better than squeezing in some reading education while on your family trip?
The Farmer’s Markets
Again, the Berkeley weather gives you plenty of options for outdoor activities. There are several delicious treats for the kids to try.
