So my wife and I just moved from SF into our new house in Berkeley. For her birthday this year instead of going anywhere she wants to get rid of the dogs for the weekend and explore our new town and its surroundings. What are some fun, secret, off the wall places we should explore in Berkeley/Oakland/Albany etc. Neither of us actually know the area that well (I grew up on the Peninsula, she's from socal).
The types of things I'd like to do, take her to a spa (its her birthday she needs to relax at some point) but arts, museums, neat shops, parks are all good ideas of places to check out. What are the hidden gems we should know about now that we live here.
