Telegraph Avenue


Any visit to Berkeley demands a visit to Telegraph Avenue, a four-block stretch with one of the highest rates of bookstores and coffee shops per capita on Earth. This is the Berkeley of the collective imagination, with ideas flowing as fast as the coffee and the colorful magic of the hippie scene still to be savored. Among the merchants to check out: Shakespeare and Company, and Moe's Books. You can browse to your heart's content without a hint of hassle. Music lovers will be wowed by fantastic record stores like Amoeba Music and Rasputin Music. When all this browsing scares up an appetite, sample the fare at one of the great ethnic restaurants in the area.
