The Bay Area Sights

4th Street

Fodor's Review

Several blocks centering on 4th Street north of University Avenue have evolved from light industrial uses into an upscale shopping and dining district. The compact area is busiest on bright weekend afternoons. Stained Glass Garden, Builders Booksource, and the Apple Store are among shoppers' favorites, along with a minislew of boutiques and wonderful paper stores. A walk through the East Bay Vivarium, at 1827 5th Street, where turtles swim, Amazonian snakes slither, and baby mice (dinner) cower, is better than a walk through the reptile house at the zoo—and it's free.
