36 minutes in Temescal

Telegraph Avenue, the neighborhood's main thoroughfare, recently received long overdue fresh pavement and protected bike lanes, making bike travel through the area safer and improving the street's aesthetic. With so much going on in Temescal, it's easy to spend an entire day there.

36 minutes in Walnut Creek

With a warm climate, beautiful surrounding hills and majestic views of Mt. Diablo, this city offers an active downtown with plenty of great shopping, restaurant options, and historical sites with open spaces to explore and fun things to do. For many it’s become a “destination location” with all it has to offer, just through the Berkeley Tunnel.
36 minutes in Orinda
It’s rare to find a sleepy bedroom community smack in the middle of a mass transit stop, but anyone familiar with the East Bay town of Orinda knows that BART’s location is a convenient landmark for anyone riding the rails.
36 minutes in Fruitvale

Experience a railroad museum, a year-round farmers' market that offers everything from flowers to fresh vegetables and fruits and bread, an old school butcher shop, and a family-owned Vietnamese restaurant serving yummy comfort food. It's all just steps from the Millbrae BART station.
36 minutes in Downtown Berkeley

There’s plenty to do around the Downtown Berkeley BART station, but if you don’t have time for a play at Berkeley Rep, or a Cal basketball game, spend 36 minutes taking a short stroll, checking out some cool public art and grabbing a quick snack.
