Introducing East Bay
By ‘East Bay, ’ most San Franciscans simply mean Oakland and Berkeley, although the area includes numerous other suburbs that swoop up from the bayside flats into exclusive enclaves in the hills. While many residents of the big city would like to think they needn’t ever cross the Bay Bridge or take a BART train under water, it is undeniable that the city would be incomplete if it didn’t have its East Bay. Museums, celebrity restaurants, universities, woodsy parklands and better weather are just some ways the East Bay lures travelers from San Francisco.
