Visit Berkeley Launches New Website

Berkeley, California (EastBayDaily) — Berkeley is a dynamic destination, and now it has a new website ( with the information, inspiration and functionality to match.    

The city’s official travel website enhances engagement with features including an interactive trip builder, free visitors guides in eight languages, hotel and dining reservations, and updated content on the contemporary Berkeley travel scene. The website is designed on a responsive platform for optimal display on all screens, including tablets and smart phones.

“We serve the community as well as out-of-town guests,” notes Ms. Hillman. “The travel resources on our new site are relevant for all Berkeley visitors, and that includes locals.
