Summer is slipping away and before we know it Fall will be here! If you didn't get that vacation abroad--or even a trip to the woods--that you wanted, and you still yearn for a travel experience, you can't beat the Bay Area for staycation opportunities. Enjoy a taste of Japan at the Tea Gardens or Japantown, both in San Francisco. There's an Oakland Chinatown, too, if you don't want to cross the bridge. In Berkeley, if you're shopping for exotic food or fashion, you might enjoy the area near the corner of University and San Pablo. For a few more international ideas, take a look at this list.
