“UC Berkeley's iconic Sather Gate is pictured in every PR and journalism piece. The plaza beyond the gate is where the students protested in 1968 and where people still congregate. Also representative of student life is Telegraph Ave from Dwight all the way up to the gate. There are a couple of decent restaurants en route.”

Museum
“Affectionately dubbed the Floating White House by the press, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's presidential yacht is one of the few floating museums in the country. The restored 165-foot vessel, a national historic landmark, is a memorial to FDR and his accomplishments.”
