Perhaps it is the city's unique, diverse character, or the fact that it is home to the oldest of the University of California campuses, but Berkeley, Calif., has a reputation it is proud to maintain. Located on the east shore of San Francisco Bay, the city maintains the same progressive attitude as its neighbors - something those looking for Berkeley apartments for rent are sure to fall in love with. Despite its big reputation, Berkeley remains relatively small, with about 113,900 residents. The University of California, Berkeley, is a large presence in the city and the student involvement and activism of the 1960s defined Berkeley as a deeply liberal city, a reputation it still has today.
Although the activism of the 1960s is very much a part of Berkeley's history, the city was founded by Europeans in the late 18th century. The city really began to grow when the campus of the University of California was established in 1873, creating a community with many Berkeley apartments for rent that was destined to be the city's driving economic and social force.

The downtown area offers plenty of art galleries, museums and performing arts centers, and is known for its local artist community. Families will enjoy a wide range of activities as well, whether flying kites at Cesar Chavez Park in West Berkeley or exploring the Habitot Children's Museum downtown. The student population has prompted plenty of microbrew pubs to set up shop in town, and the plethora of parks in Berkeley and the surrounding areas provide ample opportunities to hike, bike, rock climb, fish or simply enjoy the great outdoors. Sports enthusiasts can catch an Oakland Raiders or San Francisco 49ers game, while music lovers in Berkeley apartments may want to check out annual music festivals like the Downtown Berkeley Music Fest, Berkeley World Music Festival or the Berkeley Old Time Music Convention.
