On the San Francisco Bay in Northern, California lies the welcoming and unique city of Berkeley. While a smaller city, it has an “international reputation,” according to Visit Berkeley, and is known for its historic and artistic culture with lots of diversity. This modern city is bursting with culture, restaurants, cool neighborhoods, entertainment, hotels, shops, and more. It is also known for being home to the prestigious University of California, Berkeley, so it has a college vibe as well. Put it all together, and it is a great city to host your upcoming bachelor party on the water before your Berkeley wedding.
