Downtown Berkeley has improved and Shattuck Ave. is the center. You'll find theaters here and lots of places to eat, although mostly low-cost to cater to the student crowd. New apartments have been built.

Interesting array of shops, bakeries, coffee houses, and art and crafts stores. Worth the stroll from downtown Berkeley to North Berkeley.

From Chez panisse to the Cheeseboard to Berkeley bowl. This is a street where you can find lots of shops and restaurants and mingle with the locals. Great street for dining, shopping and just a walk around the city.
