Seems to represent Berkeley, with interesting shops to browse, good eating options and very lively. Anyone visiting Berkeley has to explore Shattuck Avenue to really know the city.

After exiting Downtown Berkeley BART subway system you will be on Shattuck Avenue with a delightful 1/2 day ahead of you. Walk south on one side of the street and sight see the "only in Berkeley" cast of characters playing music, preaching, or just hanging...More
