What is the attraction? Do you like sprawling views of the San Francisco Bay? Do you love thumbing through first edition prints of books like "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" or "Moby Dick"? Or perhaps you mainly enjoy sipping a cup of coffee and strolling through an architecturally diverse college campus? Does any of this appeal to you? Then a day visit to the University of California, Berkeley is the place to go. And it has something for just about everyone, from the ultimate bookworm to the casual coffee drinker.

The campus: The Campanile is possibly the most defining structure of the UC Berkeley campus. Standing at 307 feet tall, it has a complete 360 degree view of the East Bay, from a breathtaking glimpse of the San Francisco Bay to the jaw-dropping sight of the Berkeley Hills that engulf the back of the campus. The elevator ride up highlights some of the history of the timeless belltower, and the top of the tower boasts not only beautiful views, but great picture opportunities for the whole family.
