Stroll Along Telegraph Avenue for a Look at Life in the East Bay
Stretching almost five miles from downtown Oakland to the southern edge of the University of California at Berkeley, Telegraph Avenue is one of the main public thoroughfares in the East Bay.
Named after the telegraph line that stretched along the same space in the late 1800s,
Telegraph Avenue is always full of people and is lined with shops, cafés, restaurants, and often street vendors. Take a walk along it to see the tranformation from Oakland to Berkeley.
