West Berkeley, also known as the Waterfront, has such diverse offerings so much to offer that it's hard to know where to begin. This area, in between 6th Street, Sacramento and San Pablo Avenue, is chock full of wonderful restaurants, stores, parks, and more.
In West Berkeley's treasure chest of other yummy restaurants are Everett & Jones BBQ and Bangkok Thai Cuisine, to name a few. Acme Bar offers free tamales and $3 beers every Sunday. For family eats, Lanesplitter has great pizzas and salads. And if you are into a competitive game night, the Albatross Pub with its variety of board games, pool tables and dart boards, not to mention a fine selection of tap beer and 25-cent popcorn, should not be missed.
For lovers of trees and water, Aquatic Park is a gem. Popular with dogs and people alike, this park has an ultimate Frisbee course, Dreamland Park playground, and an overpass that lets you walk over to the Berkeley Marina, where locals enjoy windsurfing, kayaking, fishing and pausing for a moment to take in the beautiful scenery along the water's edge.
