As your parents shuffle in for Homecoming and rush between a myriad of organized activities, it’s important to take the time to show them that the beauty of Berkeley and its surroundings are more than just academic rankings! You can take them south for a picnic on Lake Merritt, travel west to stroll along the Berkeley Marina, meander north to the rolling golden hills of Mount Tamalpais or scale Grizzly Peak for a view of it all.
