Location Details

Benicia is branded the “best kept little secret in the San Francisco Bay Area,” and it’s easy to see why! Benicia has a small-town feel, million-dollar views, a rich history, and easy access to outdoor recreation as well as commuter freeways.

A Rich History – For 13 exciting months in 1853, Benicia served as California’s capital until Sacramento lured lawmakers away. Visit the original brick statehouse at the corner of First and G streets. The condo complex at 735 Buchanan St. is named for the city’s historic Clock Tower, constructed in 1859 as a U.S. military arsenal.

Strollable Downtown – Dine outside at Sailor Jack’s – A Great View without a Room, located in a former sea captain’s house. Browse at Bookshop Benicia. Go treasure hunting in the many antique shops. And treat yourself to an afternoon “cuppa” at the Camellia Tea Room,  located in a beautifully restored 1897 Victorian building.

Community Events – Embrace the small-town vibe at the farmers market and fun events like the “A Day for the Dogs” festival, St. Patrick’s Day pub crawl, wine walk, and waterfront festival with live music.

Well-regarded Schools – They include Robert Semple Elementary, Benicia Middle, and Benicia High.

Hikes and Water Recreation – So many places to roam on land, including Benicia Capitol State Historic Park, Benicia State Recreation Area tidal wetlands, and the Carquinez Strait Regional Shoreline bluffs. Meanwhile, the Ninth Street Park boat launch attracts paddlers from all over. Check out the popular Benicia Outrigger Canoe Club.

Benicia Fun FactJack London lived and worked on the waterfront as a roaming “oyster pirate” and a patrolman who enforced fish poaching laws, which inspired some of his best-known stories.
